Hospice facilities recognized for giving 'best' patient care

Jun 5, 2014 - From staff reports

Frontier Home Health and Hospice, an agency serving Fremont and Hot Spring counties, has been named a 2014 Hospice Honors recipient, a prestigious award recognizing hospices providing the best patient care as rated by the patient's caregiver.

Established by Deyta, a data collection company, this prestigious annual honor recognizes hospices that continuously provide the highest level of satisfaction through their care as measured from the caregiver's point of view.

Deyta used the Family Evaluation of Hospice Care survey results from more than 1,700 partnering hospice agencies contained in Deyta's FEHC database with an evaluation period of October 2012 through September 2013. Deyta identified Hospice Honors recipients by evaluating hospices' performance on a set of 18 satisfaction indicator measures.

"Our mission is to provide compassionate quality care with integrity by focusing on the unique needs of our patients, their families and our communities," said Shelley Gonzales, branch director for Frontier Home Health and Hospice of Lander and Riverton. "Receiving the 2014 Hospice Honor reinforces our Hospice Team's passion for providing the highest quality hospice care to our friends and neighbors."
