IN HOME HEALTH ESTABLISHES HOSPICE SERVICES IN ST. LOUIS, KANSAS CITY

 MINNETONKA, Minn., Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- In Home Health, Inc. (NASDAQ: IHHI), operating as Home Health Plus, has been granted a license to offer Hospice Services in Kansas City, Kansas and Missouri, as of July 15, 1993 and in St. Louis as of Aug. 1, 1993, according to Judy M. Figge, president and chief executive officer.
 "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," Ms. 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."
 Deborah Scholz, RN, will be the Hospice Coordinator at IHHI's St. Louis branch.
 Sam Cunningham, RN, will be the Hospice Coordinator at IHHI's Kansas City branch.
 "Kansas City and St. Louis are the fourth and fifth markets in which IHHI now offers Hospice services," Ms. Figge said. "Hospice complements the company's existing services, including pharmacy, nursing, rehabilitation and home health aide services, because many Hospice clients utilize one or more of these services."
 In Home Health currently offers Hospice services in its Chicago, Minneapolis/St. Paul and Phoenix markets.
 In Home Health provides quality comprehensive health care services to clients of all ages in their own homes through a network of 38 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.
 Home health care is one of the fastest growing and most cost- effective segments of the U.S. health-care industry, currently estimated at $16 billion annually and expected to grow to $36 billion in the mid-1990s.
