For the third year in a row, Delaware County Memorial Hospital’s Home Care department was selected as one of the “2009 Home Care Elite™,” the annual compilation of the most successful home healthcare providers in the U.S.

Organizations named to this status are ranked based on performance measures in quality outcomes, quality improvements and financial performance. The information used to measure each of the three areas for this annual review, which identifies the top 25 percent of agencies in the nation, is based on publicly available data that were submitted by each home health agency.

“The management team, clinical and support staff of the Home Care departments work to provide quality care to our patients while being fiscally responsible, which is a major challenge,” says Jane Hanahan, administrative director of Home Care and Hospice for CKHS. “The ‘HomeCare Elite™’ status demonstrates our commitment to providing quality care to our patients. I am proud that we have been given this distinction for three years in a row and I look forward to meeting the same goal in the years to come.”

The Crozer-Keystone home care programs are proven leaders in the prevention of acute care hospitalization and emergent care. Home care services include:

  • Skilled nursing
  • Physical, occupational and speech therapy
  • Home health aides
  • Medical social worker
  • Patient and family education
  • Pain management
  • Comprehensive wound care
  • Mother-baby connection.

The HomeCare Elite, the only performance recognition of its kind, is compiled by OCS, Inc., a provider of healthcare rating information, and DecisionHealth, publisher of the home care newsletter, Home Health Line.
