The nation’s largest senior living provider, Brookdale Senior Living, is proving to be a force to be reckoned with in the home health care industry.
Nine of the provider’s home health agencies have been ranked among the top 25% of agencies in the United States, according to the ninth annual HomeCare Elite list, compiled by National Research Corporation and DecisionHealth.
The review names the top home health care locations in the country based on a collection of performance measures, including quality of care, quality improvement and consistency, patient experience, best practices implementation, and financial management.
Among the Brookdale Home Health agencies that made the list, three are located in Ohio (Westlake, Columbus and Dayton); two are in North Carolina (Greensboro and Charlotte); two are in Texas (Corpus Christi and Arlington); one is in Michigan (Coloma); one is in Kentucky (Lexington).
Brookdale’s more than 50 home health agencies provide a range of services including medication management, supportive and concierge services.
In the third quarter this year, Brookdale (NYSE: BKD) completed its $2.8 billion merger with Emeritus Senior Living Corp. (NYSE: ESC), the then-second largest senior living provider in the country.
The combined company now operates more than 1,100 communities in 46 states, covering roughly 80% of the U.S. population.
