Wilson Memorial Hospital’s Home Health Care recently announced that it has been named to the 2010 HomeCare Elite, a compilation of the top performing home health agencies in the United States. Now in its fifth year, the HomeCare Elite identifies the top 25% of agencies, and further highlights the top 100 and top 500 agencies overall. Winners are ranked by an analysis of performance measures in quality outcomes, quality improvement, and financial performance.
“The 2010 HomeCare Elite winners continue to demonstrate a commitment to providing their patients with the best possible care while performing at the highest level,” said Amanda Twiss, CEO of OCS HomeCare. “We congratulate Wilson Memorial Hospital on being one of the top home care agencies in the country. In addition, we salute all forward-thinking providers who are already working on measuring and improving their performance using OASIS-C outcomes and process measures and HH-CAHPS results. This important data will also be used in identifying the HomeCare Elite in the future.”
Joann Scott, director of Wilson Home Health Care, credits her experienced and dedicated staff with the ability to rank as one of HomeCare Elite’s top home health providers. “Wilson Home Health Care has been providing healthcare for members of our community since 1984. Currently, we have a staff of care givers with over 330 years of experience,” said Scott. It is an honor to be named one of HomeCare Elite’s top agencies in the United States .”
“On the fifth anniversary of HomeCare Elite, DecisionHealth would like to congratulate all of the winners who have achieved excellent clinical and financial outcomes, especially during times of such drastic regulatory changes,” added Marci Heydt, executive editor of DecisionHealth’s Home Health Line.
