Fort Scott Home Health Named to HomeCare Elite™ List for Third Year

October 27, 2014

Mercy Fort Scott Home Health proudly announces it has been recognized once again on the prestigious list of the nation’s HomeCare Elite™.  The list is compiled by OCS HomeCare and Decision Health and names the top 25 percent of home care agencies in the nation. This marks the third year Mercy Fort Scott Home Health has received the recognition.

Five domains of performance were analyzed to determine the Elite™ awards– quality of care, quality of improvement and consistency, and experience (HHCAHPS), process measure implementation and financial performance. 

The methodology behind the OCS HomeCare Elite™ is derived from publicly available data from Home Health Compare and the CMS Cost Reports to create the HomeCare Elite™ list of agencies.

The quality of care component indexes agency performance in each of the 10 publicly-reported Home Health Compare measures released in July 2014. The process measures implementation index based on agencies’ rates in the 13 process measures included in the July 2014 Home Health Compare release.

Mercy Home Health, based in Fort Scott, was established in November 1978 and today serves approximately 900 annually in the counties of Linn, Anderson, Allen, Bourbon, Crawford, southern Miami, northern Neosho and northern Cherokee.  In July 2012, Mercy Home Health launched hospice services and currently employs five full-time staff plus multiple volunteers.

Mercy Home Health in Independence, Kansas was also named on the list.
