HomeCare Elite Winners are ranked by an analysis of publicly available performance measures in quality outcomes, best practice implementation, patient experience, quality improvement and consistency and financial performance. To be considered for this award, the agency must be Medicare-certified. 

There were 43 agencies selected from North Carolina, including the three Vidant Home Health offices. Of those, seven are in the 29 county area in which Vidant Health serves. Vidant Health represents three of those seven selected agencies. 

“The 2015 HomeCare Elite winners deserve credit for demonstrating high-quality care in their communities. As quality care initiatives become top-of-mind for health care providers, we recognize this as a remarkable achievement and are pleased to make this our 10th year of acknowledgement for top performing home health organizations,” said Christine Lang, vice president of product development for OCS HomeCare. “We congratulate Vidant Home Health and Hospice on being one of the top 500 home care agencies in the country.”

Debra Thompson, vice president of care transformation for Vidant Health, credits the skills, dedication and compassion of the Vidant Home Health and Hospice staff and leaders for these accomplishments. She said, “Vidant Home Health and Hospice continues to provide excellent patient-centered care as demonstrated by receiving the HomeCare Elite Award for the seventh year at our Greenville location and the sixth year at our Windsor location. We are also pleased that our Washington office received their first recognition of this award since joining Vidant.”
