Home Health Care Services Among Best in Country

Fauquier Health Home Care Services has been selected as one of the 2009 Home Care Elite. This is an annual compilation of the most successful home health care providers in the U.S.

Home Care Services helps patients to recover from an illness or surgery, to learn how to manage conditions like diabetes, heart disease, stroke, traumatic injuries, and to overcome joint and mobility issues and pain management problems. They also provide treatments like intravenous infusion or tube feeding therapy at home. The Home Care Services team is made up of nurses, home health aides, medical social workers and physical, occupational and speech therapists.

There were 9,000 agencies considered for the Home Care Elite; 2,200 were selected. Those 2,200 – including Fauquier Health’s Home Care Services – represent the top 25 percent of providers in the country for quality outcomes, quality improvement and financial performance measures.

Only eight hospital-based agencies in Virginia made the list; only 25 total – including independent for-profit agencies – were chosen in the commonwealth.

Home Care Services may be reached at 516.316.2700.
