Home Health Team 2011For the sixth consecutive year, Cabell Huntington Hospital’s Home Health Department received recognition from HomeCare Elite as one of the nation’s Top 500 home health agencies. More than 12,000 agencies nationwide were considered for the award, and Cabell Huntington Hospital Home Health is one of only 30 programs in the nation -- and the only program in West Virginia -- to receive the award in each of the six years it has been awarded. Cabell Huntington is also the only hospital-based program to receive the honor in the Tri-State region. 

Winners are ranked by an analysis of performance measures in quality outcomes, quality improvements and financial performance.

“The 2011 Homecare Elite winners demonstrate a commitment to providing patients with the best possible care while managing their business efficiently and effectively,” said Amanda Twiss, Chief Executive Officer of OCS HomeCare and Innerview. “This year, we updated our methodology to reflect industry focus and, based on this rigorous analysis, we congratulate Cabell Huntington Hospital on being one of the top home care agencies in the country.”

The agencies in the top 500 are already working on improving performance using CMS outcomes and process measures along with patient satisfaction score (HHCAPS).

“We are very happy about the fact that our patients are less likely to require a readmission to the hospital or a visit to the emergency department while being cared for by Cabell Huntington Hospital’s Home Health staff,” said Andra Hardin, RN, Director of Cabell Huntington Hospital Home Health. “This means that our goal of patients returning to their usual routines prior to their illness has been achieved.”

Cabell Huntington Hospital Home Health provides skilled nursing, home infusion, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, medical social service and home health aide service in Cabell, Lincoln, Putnam, and Wayne in West Virginia.
