Allina Health Hospice, Owatonna awarded Hospice Honors™

OWATONNA, Minn. 05/20/2013

Allina Health Hospice, Owatonna, is one of just 100 hospices out of the 1200 across the nation to receive the Hospice Honors™ award. Established by Deyta, an industry leader in data driven management, the annual honor recognizes agencies that continuously provide the highest level of satisfaction through their care as measured from the caregiver's point of view.

Bill Donovan, manager of Allina Health Home Care Services, Owatonna branch, credits the award to the dedication of the hospice team's compassionate, quality, end-of-life care.

"I couldn't be more proud of the Owatonna hospice team," he said. "I'm not surprised that the team won this award, because I see the quality services they provide every day."

Agencies were recognized with the Hospice Honors™ award based on Family Satisfaction Scores, which are responses to 37 questions answered voluntarily by family members.

"Hospice is very much a part of the continuum of care within health care services, with a focus on comfort, care and family support services. This award acknowledges the quality service being provided our Allina hospice staff," Donavan said. "Our hospice team sees their work as a calling; they don't see it as a job."
