“We are pleased that Dr. O’Neil has decided to join our agency. She brings a wealth of experience and knowledge.

“Dr. O’Neil is a wonderful advocate for her patients. Collectively, our focus will continue to be on quality patient outcomes and the delivery of exceptional home care”, he said.

O’Neil is an Internal Medicine physician on staff at Garden City Hospital, Botsford, and St. Mary’s of Livonia. She has been in practice since 2002 at Primary Care Specialists in Westland.

“I am excited to do something different, and to support a great agency like United Home Health Services”, she said. “I realize the importance of Home Care within the continuum of care. The need for quality health care in the home is only going to increase in the future. I want to work with UHHS to grow and expand their reach and expertise, in order to continue to provide excellent care.”

O’Neil takes over from Dr. Judith Edge who served for several years as medical director. Edge is pursuing other interests at this time.
