Community Nurses Named Among Nation's Elite

Community Nurses Home Health and Hospice is pleased to announce that it has been named a Top Agency of the 2016 HomeCare Elite™, a recognition of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States. HomeCare Elite identifies the top 25 percent of agencies each year.

In order to be considered, an agency must be Medicare-certified and have data for at least one outcome in Home Health Compare. Out of 9,406 agencies considered, 2,353 are recognized on the 2016 HomeCare Elite winners list overall.  (A complete list is available at abilitynetwork.com/homecare-elite.)
