Lawrence, Mass. – Home Health VNA, the leader in home health care, announced today that once again, the agency has been named among the top 25% of the “Home Care Elite”, a listing of the top tier of home health care agencies in the United States.
John G. Albert, President and CEO credits Home Health VNA’s highly skilled professionals and their dedication to the high standards of quality care with the company’s ability to rank as one of the Home Care Elite. “Our staff is committed to providing the highest standards of care to our patients every day. Being named among the best agencies in the country recognizes that commitment.” said Albert. “Patients and families have a choice in home health care agencies. Being recognized in the top 25% of home care agencies across the country means that when you choose Home Health VNA you are assured the most advanced care available”.
To score home healthcare agencies, the OSC used publicly available data from the last half of 2010 and the first half of 2011. All agencies were rated on quality of care measurements in the Home Health Compare report, and quality improvement and financial performance from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) Cost Reports. Each agency’s performance in these three areas was compared against the performance of other organizations in their state and in the country.
“Home Health VNA is honored to be recognized again this year for our patient care achievements. We are unwavering in our commitment to provide superior home health care and to assure that our patients and families have the best possible outcomes. Our employees demonstrate skillful care and compassion every day and it is very rewarding to have their efforts recognized”, stated Gail DeLaney-Woolford, Vice President of Clinical Services.
