Great Lakes Caring Hospice and Home Health Announces Its 2013 Awards of Excellence Honorees

November 1 – 30, 2013 is National Hospice and Home Health Care Month

Great Lakes Caring Hospice and Home Health is pleased to announce the 2013 Award for Excellence honorees for providing quality care to their residents and patients.

From over 1,200 candidates - skilled and assisted living facilities, doctors, and hospitals - in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana 125 were selected for this annual award in recognition of their collaborative efforts to help determine in a timely manner home health- and hospice-appropriate patients in order to provide meaningful and helpful quality care.

"It’s important to recognize these partners who committed to their residents’ and their patients’ best interests,” said Great Lakes Caring Chief Executive Officer William Deary. “This is the sixth year Great Lakes Caring Hospice and Home Health has recognized outstanding partners for their care.”

These honorees were chosen based on three specific criteria: 1) believing in the importance of good communications amongst the Great Lakes Caring and partner staffs; 2) keeping in mind the needs of residents/patients and the importance of making timely referrals; and 3) for supporting and understanding of the importance of collaborative care.
