Adventist HealthCare Home Care Services Receives National Quality Award

Silver Spring, MD - Adventist Home Health, which is part of Adventist HealthCare Home Care Services, has received the 2014 HomeCare Elite Award for the third year in a row. This award, which is presented by The National Research Corporation, recognizes the top-performing home health agencies in the United States.

HomeCare Elite winners are ranked by an analysis of publicly available performance measures in quality care outcomes, best practice implementation, quality improvement and consistency, patient experience (Home Health CAHPS®) and financial performance. Out of 9,994 home care agencies considered for the award, only 2,501 are named eli­­te agencies.

“We are honored to be recognized once again as one of the top performing home health agencies in the country,” said Keith Ballenger, vice president of Adventist HealthCare Home Care Services. “We credit this achievement to our highly skilled caregivers that visit homes each day to provide quality healthcare services and support to patients.”

The award is sponsored by OCS HomeCare by National Research Corporation, the leading provider of home health metrics and analytics, and DecisionHealth, publisher of the most respected independent newsletter in the home health profession, Home Health Line.

“The 2014 HomeCare Elite winners demonstrate a commitment to providing high quality care in their home health communities and we recognize them for their remarkable achievements,” said Mary Oakes, Senior Vice President of Post-Acute at National Research. “We congratulate Adventist Home Care Services on being recognized as a top home care agency.”
