Catholic Home Care Named HomeCare Elite Agency


Rockville Centre, NY – Catholic Home Care, a member of Catholic Health Services, has been named a 2018 HomeCare Elite™ agency, a recognition given to the top-performing U.S. home health agencies.


“We are proud of our Catholic Home Care staff for the support, dedication and top-quality care they provide our patients and their families every day,” said Catholic Home Care and Hospice Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer MaryEllen Polit. “To be recognized among the best is an honor and a great way to celebrate the Home Care staff for the excellent care they provide.”  


HomeCare Elite™ names the top 25 percent of agencies based on performance measures, which this year included quality of care, quality improvement, patient experience, best practices implementation and financial management. More than 9,000 home care agencies are considered nationally and the analysis is based on review of centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services publicly reported data.
