Adventist HealthCare Home Health Named a Top Agency by HomeCare Elite

Silver Spring, MD — For the ninth consecutive year, Adventist HealthCare Home Health has been named a top-performing home care agency in the nation by the 2019 HomeCare Elite®. Home Health is part of Adventist HealthCare Home Care Services and serves eight counties in Maryland.

"I am grateful to Adventist Home Health’s highly-skilled patient care teams who helped us again achieve this recognition from HomeCare Elite," said Brent Reitz, president of Adventist HealthCare Post-Acute Care Services. "We are dedicated to providing compassionate, in-home healthcare to help individuals recover from illness or manage chronic health conditions."

HomeCare Elite agencies are determined by an analysis of performance measures in quality outcomes, best practices implementation, patient experience, quality improvement and consistency and financial health. In order to be considered, an agency must be Medicare-certified and have data for at least three outcomes in Home Health Compare. Out of 8,818 agencies considered, 2,207 are recognized on the winners list.

The ranking is developed by ABILITY® Network, a leading information technology company helping providers and payers simplify the administrative and clinical complexities of healthcare. It is sponsored by DecisionHealth, part of the H3.Group.

"We’re pleased to recognize Adventist Home Health for exemplifying best practice in patient care," said Christine Lang, senior director for ABILITY® Network. "Adventist Home Health’s healthcare professionals have demonstrated exceptional commitment to care quality and the patient experience."
