BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Last week, VNA Space Coast received a 5-star rating by Medicare’s ‘Home Health Compare.’
Serving Brevard since 2000, the VNA is a Medicare-certified home health agency that provides nurses; physical, speech, and occupational therapists; home health aides; and in-home telemonitoring throughout Brevard County.
A 501C3 non-profit, the home healthcare agency also offers community wellness clinics throughout Brevard like their “Shoo the Flu” vaccination program, and no-cost blood pressure and blood sugar screenings.
Home Health Compare provides the public information about the quality of care provided by “Medicare-certified” home health agencies throughout the nation.
Using a 5-star rating system, Home Health Compare rates home health agencies on the process of care measures, and outcome of care measures.
With 5 stars equaling the highest rating, Home Health Compare states that “most agencies fall ‘in the middle’ with a rating of 3 to 3.5 stars.”
“VNA’s core values are centered solely on delivering the highest quality of care to our patients and their families. We are proud of our staff, and are pleased to be recognized with such a great rating from Home Health Compare,” said Emily Rothenberger, VNA Space Coast Physician Liaison.
“We could not achieve this without the support and collaboration of the physicians, skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities, and other community partners that believe in the VNA.”
