STUART — Treasure Coast Hospice recently received two Hospice Honors recognitions for 2015. Recipients of this prestigious honor include: TCH St. Lucie Home Team and TCH Martin Hospice House.
The Hospice Honors were established by Deyta, a healthcare data management service, and recognize hospices that continuously provide the highest level of satisfaction through their care as measured from the caregiver’s point of view. Deyta used the Family Evaluation of Hospice Care survey results from more than 1,700 partnering hospice agencies around the country contained in Deyta’s FEHC database with an evaluation period of October 2013 through September 2014. Deyta identified Hospice Honors recipients by evaluating hospices’ performance on a set of eighteen satisfaction indicator measures. Individual hospice performance scores were collected for the evaluation period and were compared on a question-by-question basis to a national average score calculated from Deyta’s FEHC database. Hospices who scored above the average on 85 percent of questions received the honor and hospices that scored above the average on 100 percent of the questions received the elite distinction.
“This is the third year that we are presenting this award to top performers, and it’s very rewarding to recognize their hard work and commitment to improving care,” said Kevin Porter, senior vice president of Deyta Analytics.
“Treasure Coast Hospice was one of only seven hospices in Florida to receive this honor which really puts us at the top of our industry,” said Leigh Bergstrom, vice president of Compliance and Quality at Treasure Coast Hospice. “We are all very proud of the excellent care provided by our teams on a daily basis and these awards are a nice recognition for all our employees’ hard work and dedication.”
