Medicare rates all home health agencies across the nation so that you, the health care consumer, can make an informed choice about your health care provider. FirstHealth Home Care consistently ranks very high in all 12 publicly reported quality measures.
These measures look at how patients receiving home health improve in their levels of independence and how often they require emergency care or are admitted to the hospital.
The chart below (from Medicare Home Health Compare, which measures quality) identifies the percentage of FirstHealth Home Care patients who had to be admitted to the hospital compared to national, state and local competitors (lower scores are better).
