The Regional Medical Center has been named to the 2009 HomeCare Elite, a compilation of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States. This annual review identifies the top 25 percent of agencies throughout the nation. Honorees are ranked by an analysis of performance measures in quality outcomes, quality improvement, and financial performance.
“The 2009 HomeCare Elite winners demonstrate a commitment to providing their patients with the best possible care while performing at the highest level,” said Nancy Buller, senior director of Marketing Communications at OCS HomeCare, the leading provider of homecare information. “We congratulate the Regional Medical Center Home Care team on being one of the top home care agencies in the country.”
RMC’s Home Health Program Executive Director Ann Marie Poon noted, “November is National Home Care, Hospice and Palliative Care Month, and it is quite an honor to receive this recognition during our special observation month! RMC’s Home Health Program was named to the 2009 HomeCare Elite as one of our nation’s top 25 percent of home health agencies. Our Home Health Program has exceeded 11 out of their 12 reportable quality standards for home care throughout the nation,” said Poon. “It is the astonishing quality of care that our patients in the community receive from our staff that makes such a difference.”
“DecisionHealth would like to congratulate the top HomeCare Elite agencies that achieved excellent clinical and financial outcomes by providing quality care to their patients,” adds Marci Heydt, executive editor of DecisionHealth’s Home Health Line, publisher of homecare’s most respected independent newsletter Home Health Line.
