IN HOME HEALTH, INC. ESTABLISHES HOSPICE SERVICES IN MINNEAPOLIS

 MINNETONKA, Minn., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- In Home Health, Inc. (NASDAQ: IHHI) received a provisional license to provide Hospice services in the state of Minnesota, from the Minnesota Department of Health, on May 21, 1993, it was announced by Judy M. Figge, president and chief executive officer.
 Cinda Goldsmith, RN, will be the Hospice program coordinator at In Home Health's Minneapolis branch, where the program will be installed.
 "Pat Skogen, RN, director of Hospice Services at In Home Health, is directing and coordinating the company's efforts to establish Hospice services in all of its 16 markets," Figge said. "We believe that the addition of Hospice services will gain client acceptance and we expect to implement Hospice programs in all of these markets by the end of fiscal 1994."
 According to Figge: "Minnesota is the second market in which In Home Health offers Hospice services. The addition of these services complements the comprehensive home care we currently offer."
 "Our Phoenix market, where Hospice was first offered, has demonstrated that almost one-half of the Hospice clients entrusted to our care also utilize our Infusion Pharmacy, as well as our Nursing, Home Health Aides and Rehabilitation services," she added.
 "Hospice is a concept of care focusing on helping the terminally ill through the dying process with dignity and comfort. It allows people to obtain physical, emotional, mental and spiritual fulfillment in living each day as fully as possible," Figge said. "Recognizing that dying is a normal process, it is dedicated to providing support and care for clients and their families in the final stages of life."
 In Home Health provides quality comprehensive health care services to clients of all ages in their own homes through a network of 37 offices in 16 of the nation's top 50 markets, including: Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Norfolk, Pittsburgh, Phoenix, Raleigh/Durham, St. Louis, San Francisco and Seattle.
