Whidbey General Hospital

Home Health Recognized for Excellence

Whidbey General is proud that its Home Health Department was named a 2013 Guardian of Excellence Award winner by Press Ganey Associates, Inc.

The Guardian of Excellence Award recognizes top performing organizations that consistently achieved the 95th percentile of performance in patient satisfaction, employee engagement, physician engagement or clinical quality.

The Press Ganey Guardian of Excellence Award is a healthcare industry symbol of achievement. Fewer than 5% of all Press Ganey clients reach this threshold and consistently maintain it for the one year reporting period.

Press Ganey partners with more than 10,000 health care facilities, including more than half of all U.S. hospitals, to measure and improve patient experience.

According to Karen Schanno, director of Home Health Care services, the award represents important recognition of Whidbey General's quality care.

“Individuals who require treatment in the home are among our most vulnerable patients,” Schanno says. “It is important that they receive the highest quality care possible.”

Home Health Care provides support and services at home to assist patients in recovering from an illness, injury or surgery. Home Health services are offered to patients who would find it difficult to receive care away from home.

Whidbey General's skilled and compassionate clinicians have been providing home health services for more than 30 years.
