Assured Home Health was ranked among the nation’s Top 500 home health providers in an independent rating of home health quality and performance. The Federal Way home health provider was named to the 2015 HomeCare Elite list, a recognition of the top-performing home health providers in the United States.

This is the fifth year that Assured Home Health has been named to the prestigious HomeCare Elite list. Assured Home Health is part of LHC Group, a national provider of post-acute care services with 10,000 employees operating more than 300 locations in 29 states.

The award is sponsored by OCS HomeCare by National Research Corporation, the leading provider of home health and hospice metrics and analytics, and DecisionHealth, publisher of the most respected independent publication in the home care profession, Home Health Line.

The market-leading review names the top home health care locations in the country based on a variety of performance measures. Out of 9,718 agencies considered, 2,431 are elite.

“LHC Group is proud of Assured Home Health and its achievement of 2015 HomeCare Elite status, and we commend them on their exemplary performance,” said Keith G. Myers, LHC Group’s chairman and chief executive officer. “With this latest accomplishment, this team of healthcare professionals continues to demonstrate its commitment to excellence. We continue to raise the bar across our company and the healthcare industry as a whole. I couldn’t be more proud or privileged to lead such a team of high performers.”

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the HomeCare Elite identifies the top 25 percent of agencies and highlights the top 100 and top 500 agencies overall. Winners are ranked by an analysis of publicly available performance measures in quality outcomes, best practice, implementation, patient experience, quality improvement and consistency, and financial performance. In order to be considered, an agency must be Medicare-certified and have data for at least one outcome in Home Health Compare.
