At Amedisys, everything we do is centered on delivering the very best care possible – to our patients and our people. Whether we’re helping a knee replacement patient regain independence, counseling a hospice patient’s family with bereavement support or aiding the elderly with daily tasks, we empower our patients to stay where they most want to be – at home.
To do this, we must provide the highest clinical quality – and Amedisys’ clinical quality scores reflect this commitment to clinical distinction. In home health, our care centers average 4.33 stars out of 5, the highest in the industry and a full point above the national average. Our hospice scores exceed the national average in all measures. Having excellent quality isn’t just a bragging point – it can make all the difference in the lives of our patients; preventing unnecessary hospitalizations, improving patient satisfaction, outcomes and quality of life; saving healthcare providers time and effort with seamless communication and 24/7 availability while providing peace of mind for providers, patients and their families.
As a company of caregivers, we believe in supporting our people by building a culture of caregiving where employees can be their best selves professionally and personally. The cornerstone of this culture is listening to our people, obtaining feedback and then taking action based on that feedback. Through listening tools like quarterly employee engagement surveys and monthly focus groups, we learn what our people need to feel a sense of belonging and better connection to our company. Then we invest in the tools, programs and training that brings the most value. From our employee-led Diversity and Inclusion program and Leading Inclusively training to our Welcome Home clinician onboarding program and our Employees 1st Fund to help with financial hardships and natural disasters, we strive to create a culture of caregiving every day.
This culture was never more on display as it was in 2020. In one of the most challenging years ever, our teams proved relentless in their dedication to our mission and going above and beyond to provide the same level of clinical excellence and support to our patients during the global pandemic. Just a few examples include our business development team members in Alabama playing tic-tac-toe with patients in assisted living facilities on the window to ease loneliness caused by extended stay-at-home orders while clinical teams across the country brought meals and appreciation for hospital workers. In short, Amedisys stepped up and our persistent spirit shined through the darkest times.
As a leading healthcare-at-home company, we’re constantly innovating and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the home, leveraging the latest advances in predictive analytics and making strategic investments in hospital-at-home and SNF-at-home capabilities. Our recent acquisition of Contessa Health will expedite this strategy.
