Many people long for a time when things were simpler. The hustle and bustle of today’s life causes stress, anxiety and a feeling that one doesn’t even have “time” to get sick.
Nurse practitioner Meta Hodges-Anderson, of Renova, recognized this trend and during the pandemic decided to do something about it.
“I saw how the pandemic had affected many of my patients when working in the clinic and decided to establish a service to help Innovative Healthcare, LLC Home-Base House Call Medical Service which specializes in providing quality personalized medical care in the comfort of your home. This is a good, old-fashion medical house call service,” Hodges-Anderson explained. “I’m loving being able to bring exceptional individualized care to the doorstep.”
Her thought is some people cannot make it to a doctor’s appointment due to time constraints or may lack transportation options, but whatever the reason, people need access to quality healthcare.
The Oxford native, who has been a nurse practitioner for five years, said she has received positive feedback. “People are saying there is truly a need for medical house calls,” she explained. “You do not have to be bed bound to utilize these services. We take Medicare, Medicaid, Private Insurance and self-pay.”
Under the direction of Dr. DeGail J. Hadley, DO, Hodges-Anderson provides this service that has helped ailing people unable to get out of the bed continue to rest in the comfort of their own home. This falls under her family’s sense of entrepreneurship and commitment to community.
She has been nursing since 1993 beginning as LPN graduating from Northwest Community College, then furthering her education graduating from Coahoma Community College ADN program in 2010. Not stopping there, she obtained her Bachelors of Science Degree in nursing in 2014 and Masters of Science Degree in nursing with concentration in Family Nurse Practitioner in 2016 from Walden University.
As for serving her community, Hodges-Anderson is a member of Azion M.B. Church in Mound Bayou, where she is the First Lady. She’s a member of Mississippi Nurses Association, member of The American Association of Nurses, member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, member of Ladies Social Club Group Athena, member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., Chi Mu Omega Chapter.
She and her husband, Pastor Tony G. Anderson, have three daughters Maya, Jori and Abrea’.
