Caretenders in Braintree recently announced it has been named a top agency of the 2018 HomeCare Elite, a recognition of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States.
“The entire LHG Group family congratulates our team members at Caretenders for achieving this meaningful mark of excellence in our industry,” said Keith G. Myers, LHC Group’s chairman and CEO. “They are the reason we succeed in bringing high-quality health care to the patients, families, referral sources and healthcare partners in every community we serve. Their hard work and commitment to patients and families has earned Caretenders a place among the nation’s best.”
HomeCare Elite agencies are determined by an analysis of performance measures in quality outcomes, best practices implementation, patient experience, quality improvement, 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 8,898 agencies considered, 2,223 are recognized on the 2018 HomeCare Elite winners list overall.
“I would like to congratulate the team at Caretenders and thank them for their commitment to providing consistently high-quality care,” said Christine Lang, senior director for ABILITY Network. “During a time of increasing demands on home health professionals’ time and attention, these caregivers and leaders have demonstrated that they have prioritized their patients and created a solid foundation for serving their communities and partnering with other health care providers.”
