Hendrick Hospice Care named a 2020 Hospice Honors recipient

Hendrick Hospice Care has been named a 2020 Hospice Honors recipient by HEALTHCAREfirst, a leading provider of billing and coding services, Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) surveys and advanced analytics. Hospice Honors is a prestigious program that recognizes hospices providing the highest level of quality as measured from the caregiver’s point-of-view.

“Hendrick Hospice Care strives to provide the highest quality and compassionate care for our patients every day," said Karen Tucek, director for Hendrick Hospice Care. “This award recognizes the tremendous dedication of our physicians, employees and volunteers. With the help of hospice, our patients and families are not alone on this journey. The work and support of the entire hospice team truly makes a difference in so many lives. It is with great honor and humility that we receive such an award.”

Award criteria was based on Hospice CAHPS survey results for an evaluation period of October 2018 through September 2019. Award recipients were identified by evaluating performance on a set of 24 quality indicator measures, and the performance scores were aggregated from all completed surveys and were compared on a question-by-question basis to a National Performance Score calculated from all hospices contained in the HEALTHCAREfirst’s Hospice CAHPS database.

“We are excited to recognize the 2020 Hospice Honors recipients for their hard work and dedication to providing exceptional care,” said Misty Skinner, executive vice President of services at HEALTHCAREfirst. “I congratulate Hendrick Hospice Care on its success in achieving this highest of honors.”

Hendrick Hospice Care serves approximately 1,000 families each year.
