Mercy Home Health has announced that it has been named to the 2011 HomeCare Elite’s top 100 home health care agencies in the United States.
The HomeCare Elite annual review highlights the top 25 percent of home health care agencies and has become the industry standard for recognizing organizational performance. The HomeCare Elite also recognizes the top 100 and top 500 home health providers nationwide. Winners are ranked by an analysis of performance measures in quality of care, process measure implementation, and financial performance.
Michelle Appenzeller, director of Mercy Home Health, credits a dedicated home care team and a commitment to quality care with the non-profit company’s ability to rank as one of the HomeCare Elite. She said, “Out of nearly 10,000 qualifying Medicare-certified agencies, Mercy Home Health is thrilled to be named in the top 100 home health agencies in the country. This prestigious honor is a result of hard work by our home care team and we are excited to share the news with our patients and community members in Durango and Pagosa Springs.”

The 2011 HomeCare Elite is brought to the industry by OCS HomeCare, the leading provider of homecare information, and DecisionHealth, publisher of the industry’s most respected independent newsletter Home Health Line and the Complete Home Health ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Coding Manual.
