Immanuel Partners with Tabitha to Expand Home Health Care and Hospice Services

Lincoln-based Tabitha ( and Omaha-based Immanuel ( have entered into a new joint venture. Together, they will work to expand Tabitha’s award-winning Medicare Certified Home Health Care and Hospice services to the Omaha-metro area. Tabitha was the first in the state to offer home health care (since 1966) and hospice (since 1979).

Bringing close to 20 years of experience in the home health and hospice field, the team has tapped long-time Omaha Home Health and Hospice industry professional, Bridget Caniglia, MBA, MSN, RN, to lead this initiative in the Omaha market. Most recently, Caniglia served as a clinical executive within a local nonprofit home health and hospice agency. The joint venture will begin by serving Immanuel’s communities followed by the general Omaha-metro community. The program is slated to start providing hospice services to eligible clients in early 2022 followed by skilled home health care services in mid-2022.
