2013 LMH Home Care has been named to the Top 500 of the 2013 HomeCare Elite

Licking Memorial Hospital (LMH) Home Care has been named to the Top 500 of the 2013 HomeCare EliteTM, a recognition of the top performing home health agencies in the U.S.  The award was based on publicly available measures in the categories of quality outcomes, best practice implementation, patient experience, quality improvement and consistency, and financial performance.
 
“The HomeCare Elite award affirms that LMH’s excellent care extends beyond the Hospital walls,” said Debbie Young, LMH Vice President Patient Care Services.  “LMH Home Care ranked very well in each of the compared measures, and especially well in the categories of patient experience (96th percentile), process measure implementation (95th percentile) and quality of care (85th percentile).  These are three important endorsements that reflect the compassion and professionalism that LMH Home Care providers bring to their patients every day.”
 
“The 2013 HomeCare Elite winners demonstrated a commitment to providing patient-centered care and serving as leaders in the home health community,” said Mary Oakes, Senior Vice President of Post-acute at National Research.  “We congratulate LMH Home Care on being one of the Top 500 home care agencies in the country.”
 
The award sponsors, OCS HomeCare by National Research Corporation and DecisionHealth, examined performance data from 9,969 home care agencies to determine the top 25 percent, designated as the HomeCare Elite winners.  Those winners were further divided into the Top 500 and Top 100 agencies overall.  HomeCare Elite was established in 2006, and LMH Home Care has received the award five times.  

This year marks the first time that LMH Home Care earned a Top 500 designation.  Out of a Central Ohio area that includes the six counties of Franklin, Knox, Licking, Fairfield, Perry and Muskingum, LMH is one of only two facilities that received a place on the Top 500 or Top 100 list in 2013.
