GCH Home Health agency receives high honors

January 16, 2014


Home Health at Geary Community Hospital has been named a 2013 HHCAHPS Honors recipient.  This is a prestigious award recognizing those home health agencies that provide the best patient experience. HHCAHPS is a standardized tool used to measure patient perceptions of care provided by Medicare-certified home health agencies.


Established by Deyta, this prestigious annual honor recognizes the top 20 percent of home health agencies that continuously provide the highest level of satisfaction through their care as measured from the patient’s point of view.  HHCAHPS Honors acknowledges the highest performing agencies ranked by analyzing satisfaction measures covering both performance and improvement of care over a 12-month period.


Deyta used the HHCAHPS survey results from over 1,200 eligible home health agencies contained in its HHCAHPS database with an evaluation period of April 2012 to March 2013.


Deyta partners with thousands of hospice, home health and healthcare organizations to simplify data driven management.


Home Health at Geary Community Hospital was also named one of the HomeCare Elite for 2013, an award of excellence for top performing agencies from the OCS HomeCare National Research Corporation and Decision Health. They identify the top 25 percent of Medicare certified agencies in the nation. Winners of this award are ranked by an analysis of publicly reported data on performance measures in quality outcomes, best practices, quality improvement and consistency, and financial performance.


Terri Wahle, RN, director of Home Care Services at Geary Community Hospital, and her staff are located at 1310 W. Ash in Junction City, across from the hospital.
