VNA of Cape Cod Ranked Among Top 500 in U.S.

November 2013

Cape Cod Healthcare is pleased to announce that the Visiting Nurse Association of Cape Cod has been named to the 2013 HomeCare Elite™ list of top 500 agencies in the U.S. for the eighth consecutive year. The annual list is a compilation of the top performing home health agencies in the country.

Now in its eighth year, the HomeCare Elite reviews close to 10,000 home health agencies around the country and identifies the top 25 percent. It further highlights the top 100 and top 500 agencies.

Winners are ranked by an analysis of publicly available performance measures, including:

  • Quality outcomes
  • Patient experience
  • Quality improvement
  • Financial performance

The HomeCare Elite is the only performance recognition of its kind in the home health profession. It is co-sponsored by National Research Corporation, the leading provider of cross-continuum healthcare metrics and analytics, and by DecisionHealth, the publisher of the industry's most respected independent newsletter, Home Health Line.

"The 2013 HomeCare Elite winners demonstrate a commitment to providing patient-centered care and serving as leaders in the home health community," said Mary Oakes, Senior Vice President of Post Acute at National Resarch. "Their success is a tribute that managing healthcare data and utilizing it for improvement initiatives lead to high quality care."

The VNA of Cape Cod, a member of Cape Cod Healthcare, serves patients from Provincetown to Pembroke. VNA nurses, therapists, home health aides and staff provide more than 300,000 home health and hospice care visits annually, and also offers screenings, immunizations and wellness programs through their public health department.

"We are extremely pleased that the VNA has once again been recognized as one of the top 500 home health agencies in America," said Michael Lauf, President and CEO of Cape Cod Healthcare. "Our VNA team demonstrates their commitment to our community daily by providing patient-centered, top-quality, compassionate care. To have received this honor every year since the program began is a remarkable achievement."
