Rich Firth: Co-Founder
Rich brings over 20 years of healthcare and leadership experience to Hometown. Together he and Jeff Paul have worked side by side providing patients and families with compassionate care.
My philosophy of care is simple….”I want to do what’s right for the patient and their family”. My vision at Hometown is to provide our employees with a “barrier free” approach to healthcare. If a patient or family member need it ….they get it.
Our Ownership Team is committed to doing the right thing for our patients, their families, our employees and our community. Together in the years to come Hometown and its employees will have the awesome opportunity to touch and therefore impact many lives. I am excited for the journey ahead!
