Los Alamos Visiting Nurse Service recently announced that it has been named to the 2008 HomeCare Elite, a compilation of the most successful Medicare-certified home health care providers in the United States.

This annual review identifies the top 25 percent of agencies, ranked by an analysis of performance measures in quality outcomes, quality improvement and financial performance.

“The 2008 HomeCare Elite winners exemplify a commitment to providing their patients with optimum care while performing at the highest level,” said Nancy Buller, Senior Director of Marketing Communications at OCS, Inc.

“We congratulate Los Alamos Visiting Nurse Service on being one of the top home care agencies in the country.”

Sarah Rochester, executive director of Los Alamos Visiting Nurse Service, credits the excellent staff and physician involvement with the company’s ability to rank as one of the HomeCare Elite. She said, “We are very fortunate to have the confidence of the communities we serve and will continue to strive to provide ever improving services. Our goal continues to be the best.”

“DecisionHealth would like to congratulate the top HomeCare Elite agencies that achieved excellent clinical and financial outcomes by providing quality care to their patients,” said Marci Heydt, executive editor of DecisionHealth’s Home Health Line.

The 2008 HomeCare Elite is the only performance recognition of its kind in the home health industry.
