The Record-Herald

Hospice of Fayette County has been named a 2016 Hospice Honors recipient by Deyta Analytics, a division of HealthCarefirst, the leading provider of web-based home health and hospice software.

Hospice Honors is a prestigious program that recognizes hospices providing the highest level of quality as measured from the caregiver’s point of view.

“We are honored to have received this recognition as it comes directly from the patients and families that we serve. We strive to provide the highest quality care to each individual, so to know that we are meeting that mark is very humbling, said Lynda Wilt, executive director for Hospice of Fayette County.

Awards criteria were based on Hospice CAHPS survey results completed by patients and their families on their satisfaction with care, provided by Hospice of Fayette County, during an evaluation period of April through September 2015. Award recipients were identified by evaluating hospices’ performance on a set of 24 quality indicator measures.

“Hospice Honors is a landmark compilation of hospices that provide the best patient and caregiver experiences,” said Bobby Robertson, president and CEO of HealthCarefirst. “I am extremely proud of Hospice of Fayette County for achieving this highest of honors and I congratulate them on their success.”

Hospice of Fayette County is a local not-for-profit hospice agency established in 1987, which provides comfort, symptom management and physical, mental and spiritual support when there is a life-limiting illness.
