Medical Centers HomeCare was named a “Premier Performer” in the recently released 2017 SHPBest™ recognition program results – ranking in the top five percent of providers. The program is administered by Strategic Health Programs (SHP) to recognize home health agencies that consistently provide high quality service to the patients and families under their care.
The 2017 SHP Best award recipients were determined by reviewing and ranking the overall satisfaction scores for more than 2,400 home health providers. In addition, award recipients were required to achieve a score better than or equal to the SHP national average throughout the period for each of the publicly reported quality measure domains.
The professional clinicians and support staff at Medical Centers HomeCare serve the residents of Guntersville and the surrounding region with quality healthcare at their place of residence. Home health care is an effective and affordable solution for many patients’ post-acute care needs and situations.
