St. Anthony’s Hospice earns recognition | Business
St. Anthony’s Hospice has been named a 2013 Hospice Honors recipient, a prestigious award recognizing hospice agencies providing the best patient care as rated by the patient’s caregiver.
Established by Deyta, this prestigious annual honor recognizes the top 100 agencies 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 (FEHC) survey results from over 1,200 partnering hospice agencies contained in its national, FEHC database with an evaluation period of January through December 2012. Deyta used the five key drivers of caregiver satisfaction as the basis of the Hospice Honors calculations.
“Hospice Honors defines a new standard of excellence in the patient/family experience for hospice agencies,” says Liz Silva, Deyta Vice President, “Identifying these top-performing hospices is our way of recognizing organizations that have demonstrated high quality of care to both patients and caregivers. That positive family experience is a key driver of ongoing patient-focused care and overall agency success.”
Jack Hogan, St. Anthony’s Hospice Board Chairman and Methodist Hospital Director of Facilites Management, credits the leadership team for establishing high standards of excellence and the hard work and dedication of the front line staff for the organization being named a 2012 HHCAHPS Honors recipient . He said, "Although St. Anthony’s has experienced an unprecedented growth in patient volume in the past year, the quality of care and attention to the needs of the patients has continued to improve. Every member of St. Anthony’s staff is fully engaged in the mission of delivering compassionate care."
