On Wednesday, Jan. 16 Saint Mary’s Home Care was presented with the HealthInsight Quality Award 2012. The award program recognizes excellence in performance on the publicly reported Medicare core measures and the implementation of quality markers. Saint Mary’s Home Care was the only program in northern Nevada to receive this top honor.

Agencies that receive the HealthInsight Quality Award rank in the 90th percentile, for a full year of data submitted, of all Home Health programs in the nation. In addition to achieving the percentile ranking, programs must also have zero deficiencies on their last State survey and demonstrate they have a process in place to review patient cases for quality.

“We are very proud to be the only program in northern Nevada to receive statewide recognition for our quality efforts,” said Steve Estipona, director of Saint Mary’s Home Care. “Our staff focuses entirely on our patients and making sure they have every resource available for successful rehabilitation. We go above and beyond to ensure our patients understand their treatment program and how we can aid them on the journey of healing.”

Saint Mary’s Home Care provides a convenient option for patient and families right in the comfort of their own home. Services are offered in northern Nevada, including rural communities, and range from intravenous drug and nutrition therapy to post-surgical follow-up including rehabilitation and terminal care. Additionally, a team of skilled professionals work collaboratively with other agencies to ensure patients receive a treatment program customized to their needs.
