LIMA — Mercy Health-Home Health Lima has been recognized as one of the top-performing home health agencies in the U.S. by HomeCare Elite, which identifies the top 100, top 500 and top 25% of Medicaid-certified homecare agencies each year.
“Mercy Health-Home Health’s professionals have demonstrated exceptional commitment to care quality and the patient experience,” said Christine Lang, senior director for the ABILITY Network, an information technology firm which ranks top healthcare agencies for HomeCare Elite.
The Top Agencies award is based on several criteria, including patient experience, quality improvement and consistency, financial health and best practices, according to a press release. HomeCare Elite considered more than 8,800 homecare agencies for its awards this year, but only 2,200 winners were named.
