Visiting Nurse and Hospice Care Receives Four-Star Performance Rating

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have awarded Visiting Nurse and Hospice Care a four-star rating for top performance.

The ranking is part of the new CMS Quality of Patient Care Star Ratings within its Home Health Compare database, a service on the Medicare.gov website that helps consumers make informed choices about where to seek care.

Nationally, 9,359 home health agencies met the criteria to receive a rating, of which 26.3 percent received four or more stars.

VNHC, which has served the comprehensive home health and hospice services on the Central Coast since 1908, is among 42 other Visiting Nurse Associations of America member organizations who received top performance ratings. 

See the list here.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
