Hospice of Iredell receives national honor
FROM STAFF REPORTS
Hospice & Palliative Care of Iredell County (HPCIC) has been recognized with a Hospice Honors award for the fourth consecutive year.
The Hospice Honors is awarded annually to hospices that continuously provide the highest level of care to patients and families. The Hospice Honor is reserved for hospices that score above the national average in 20 evaluated questions.
HPCIC is one of seven hospices in North Carolina, and one of only 19 nationwide, to receive recognition four consecutive years.
“Our mission is to provide extraordinary care to patients and families of our community. I am extremely proud of HPCIC consistently achieving this honor,” HPCIC CEO Terri Phillips said.
Hospice Honors is a program that recognizes hospices that year after year provide the highest level of satisfaction through their care as measured by families. All families that are served by hospice are sent surveys who are collected and tabulated by independent third party companies.
HPCIC was compared on a question-by- question basis to 1,500 hospices nationwide. HPCIC was given this award by the independent surveyor, DEYTA, Inc.
