New Milford VNA & Hospice has again been recognized as a top home health agency in the United States by HomeCare Elite.

The HomeCare Elite recognition program measures and ranks patient outcomes and agency performance nationwide.

Locally based and nationally recognized, New Milford Visiting Nurse has achieved high ranks for the last 11 years.

Out of over 9,000 agencies surveyed through this program, only 66 share this level of excellence.

This puts the agency in the top 1 percent nationwide.

Andrea Wilson, executive director of New Milford VNA & Hospice, credits the qualified and committed staff with the agency’s ability to achieve this recognition as one of the HomeCare Elite.

“We are delighted to be honored once again with this national distinction,” Wilson said.

“This level of performance doesn’t happen magically,” she said. “It is earned when you have highly trained professional health care employees and a supporting cast of conscientious office staff, loyal volunteers and a dedicated board of directors.”
