For any business, being named one of the Top 100 in the Nation for their industry would be reason to celebrate. When Cornerstone Home Healthcare was named one of the Top 100 Home Health Agencies in the nation late last year by HomeCare Elite ™, owner Stacy Fitzpatrick was proud. But the reason why her agency received that award is what makes her proudest. Cornerstone Home Healthcare made the Top 100 Homecare Elite list because of a high level of patient care and patient satisfaction.
Fitzpatrick says that her business had been named in the Top 500 for the last several years because of the quality of her staff. She attributes the new award to on-going training and commitment of the staff to providing quality of care and positive outcomes for patients.
From service provider to business owner
Cornerstone Home Healthcare came about because Fitzpatrick was a physical therapist trained at Indiana University who saw a need in Morgan County. With encouragement from her husband, Steve, she began the two-year task of securing state and federal licensing from the Accreditation Commission for Health Care to serve Medicare patients. By 2010 she completed the licensing requirements and opened for business.
She knew from her experience in the field how highly-regulated the industry was, and how much coordination and documentation was necessary. She intimately understands the stress levels and demands put on medical staff in a home healthcare role. That understanding drives her hiring decisions, business decisions, and employee relations.Read the Full June 2018 Edition Here
