How Serious Health Builds An Emerging Model Of Care
Gideon Thomas is a health care entrepreneur here in Chattanooga.
In 2019, she founded Serious Health, which provides in-home medical care services.
Her company places elderly and disabled clients into the personal homes of nurses who care for their daily needs.
Under a care model known as “Next of Kin,” the clients receive the same services from the nurses as they would get from a family member: preparing their food, transportation, managing their medication, and emotional support.
I spoke with Gideon - and Lynn Chestnutt, executive director of the Chattanooga office of the Tennessee Small Business Development Center - at the TSBDC.
Our thanks to Madison McCann of the TSBDC for recording this conversation.
