Olympic Medical Home Health has multiple reasons to celebrate National Home Care and Hospice Month this November, including the receipt of another Home Care Elite award.
Olympic Medical Home Health also recently relocated its multiple business offices into consolidated space down the block at 1005 Georgiana St. in Port Angeles, and is hosting an open house from 3 to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 19.
"We have been included in the HomeCare Elite since it started nine years ago, and we are proud to earn recognition year after year,” says Joan Warren, director, Olympic Medical Home Health. "This recognition is a result of the fantastic, caring and experienced staff who is dedicated to providing quality services to our patients.”
Olympic Medical Home Health provides nursing, physical, occupational, social work and home health aide services throughout Clallam and West Jefferson counties. Most recently, an experienced speech therapist joined the team.
In addition to patient care, Olympic Medical Home Health has been busy in the past year, advocating at the state level to curb cuts to home health services in the state, while also stabilizing the financial viability of the service. "We have been serving more patients with complex and varied needs, and we receive many wonderful comments from our patients about the care they received from our caregivers,” says Warren. "I am very pleased about our direction and look forward to our continued quality improvement work.”
