Marion County Home Care Services won the Home Care Elite award of excellence for providing quality care to its patients.
The award ranks MCHCS in the top 500 in the nation for home health services in five categories: quality of care, quality of improvement and consistency, patient experience, process to measure implementation, and financial performance.
Janet Herzet, director for aging services at St. Luke, said the award has been won by MCHCS every year but one since opening.
“The award means we’re ranked in the top 25 percent of agencies throughout the country,” she said. “It means overall validation for workers and our services throughout Marion and the county.”
