Fairmont General Hospital Named a Top Agency of 2013 HomeCare Elite

Fairmont General Hospital has been named a Top Agency of the 2013 HomeCare Elite for the seventh year in a row.

This is recognition of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States.

HomeCare Elite identifies the top 25 percent of Medicare-certified agencies and highlights the top 100 and 500 agencies overall.

Winners are ranked by an analysis of publicly available performance measures.

"Our patients get better at walking, they get better at breathing, they are more independent at home. Those type of outcomes are what we have achieved the top ranking in," said Kim Hawkinberry, FGH Home Health Director.

In order to be considered, an agency must be Medicare-certified and have data for at least one outcome in Home Health Compare.

Earlier this month, Fairmont General Hospital was also named a top performer on Key Quality Measures for the third straight year.
