On July 16, 2015 the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services publicly released its star ratings nationwide for home healthcare providers. Found on its website www.medicare.gov, Medicare’s Home Health Compare uses a quality of patient care star rating to show consumers how the performance of a home health agency compares to other agencies. Agencies get a rating from 1 to 5 stars, with 1 being the lowest score and 5 representing the highest performance. A 4 or 5 star rating means that the agency performed better than other agencies. A 1 or 2 star rating means that the agency’s performance is below average while 3 or 3 ½ stars indicates that the agency falls somewhere “in the middle.”
Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice is happy to announce that it has received a 4 star rating
and that it is the highest ranked Visiting Nurse Association in both Belknap and Carroll Counties. “This is something that our clients have always known,” says Margaret Franckhauser, CEO of Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice. “The high quality of care we provide simply indicates our dedication and commitment to our clients and our community. We intend to continue to provide excellent care and enhance our quality into the future.”
Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice Clinical Director Tammi Mozier states, “Our patients deserve the best. Being recognized as providing the highest quality care in Belknap and Carroll Counties confirms that Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice is one of the few the agencies in New Hampshire able to provide them with what they deserve.”
