About Us

Who We Are


Willow Services was founded from humble beginnings by two physical therapists in May of 2009. They built the company based on their Christian belief in caring for others. Lacking big financial backing but armed with passion, brains, and experience, they took a leap of faith and started the business out of their dining room. For months they burned the midnight oil, writing their own policies and procedures, then reported to their full-time jobs in the morning. After passing their licensing and accreditation surveys with flying colors, they knew that Willow was on its way.

Since then, Willow has added two services, along with private duty and hospice, to complete its circle of care. Its steady growth is attributed to the owners and dedicated employees who give their best to make a difference every day. Amidst the changing regulations and reimbursement, Willow remains viable, because of their recipe for success and fervent dedication to the company's mission: WE CARE.
