OCS HomeCare and DecisionHealth recognized Olympic Medical Home Health for the fifth year in a row, bestowing the local Medicare-certified home health agency with a HomeCare Elite Top-100 home health agency distinction for 2010.

Olympic Medical Home Health is one of only 11 agencies to be named in the top 500 every year since the inception of the HomeCare Elite in 2006, four of those years in the top 100.

Olympic Medical Home Health is also one of just 31 agencies returning from last year’s top 100.

“We continue to be successful because of our highly skilled and dedicated clinical staff, and our continued quality efforts,” says Fran Sisson, administrator of Olympic Medical Home Health. “With these key elements, Olympic Medical Home Health will continue to be an award-winning agency.”

OCS HomeCare and DecisionHealth considered more than 9,375 home health agencies nationwide in their annual review, which ranked agencies by an analysis of performance measures in quality outcomes, quality improvements and financial performance. This annual review identified the top 25 percent of agencies and further highlighted the top 100 and top 500 agencies overall.

Olympic Medical Home Health staff includes Janet Bracken, Jennifer Johnston, Shirley Coleman, Emily Marcus, Lea Alin-Alin, Holly “Grayson” Wilkinson, Susan Thomas-Barger, Jackie Wilhelm, Lydia Courney, Sarah Swindler, Michele Jackson, Joan Warren, Fran Sisson, Kathy Angel, Patti Green, Peter Clifford, Alice Ramey, Christina Purviance, Genny Monahan, Leann Johnson, Janet Li, Christine Straker, Darcy Hansted, Ann Marie Bituin, Barbara Gruner, Anna Dziak, Joan Miller, Kristin Godfrey, Theresa Webster, Ellen DeBondt, Joy Biehler, Nancy Johns, Sophia Walker, Harry Laurdermilk, Eleanore Hafer, Kay Davidson, Karla Chamberlin, David Fox, Harriet Haydon, Lisa Connolly, Yvonne Krieger, Julie Burgess, Bill Fritz, Claudia Fox, Ray Henninger, Jim Bibler, Barbara Wise, Ron Elliot, Terri Neal, Pam Butler, Donna Dewey, Linda Prince, Laura Anderson and Karen Keller.
