Paula Thompson

Paula Thompson has more than 35 years of experience in health care, primarily in the home and community-based setting.  Fidelity Health Care is a member of Premier Health, which is the largest health system in the Dayton, Ohio area.  Premier Health includes five hospitals, a large network of primary care and specialty physicians, and a comprehensive home and community-based division. Through expansion and innovation, Fidelity has grown in the management of home-based services and products, including home infusion, DME and respiratory/oxygen service line, and is recognized as one of the largest home health organizations in southwest Ohio.

Recently, Fidelity was involved in a department consolidation with Premier Health Community Health. The division includes employer/school-based screening and education programs, occupational health, and an employee assistance program.  This division expands the role of Fidelity within the health system’s value programs, develops a strong community presence, ensures coordination, and focuses on consumer centric care.

In addition, Fidelity has designed a Care Management Center that focuses on transitions of care and the chronically ill.  The Center provides care to patients in transition from the hospital and at risk for hospitalization. Selected chronic conditions are managed through outreach and patient remote monitoring.   Fidelity has also developed, implemented and is managing the urgent care locations and retail pharmacy for Premier Health.
