HCAHPS Honors recipients include agencies scoring above the HEALTHCAREfirst National Average on at least 85% of the evaluated questions.

“We began our Annual Hospice Honors Award program more than ten years ago as a way to highlight those agencies that are truly leading the way in providing and demonstrating quality patient care,” said Ronda Howard, Vice President of Revenue Cycle and CAHPS at HEALTHCAREfirst. “We congratulate Hospice of Texarkana d.b.a. Hospice of Hope on their success and are so proud and honored that they have chosen to partner with us in helping drive success for their agency.”

Hospice of Texarkana, Inc., Cindy Marsh, Executive Director, says, “We are very honored to, once again, receive this designation. Having exclusive access to the region’s only free-standing hospice care facility is a huge benefit to our patients and their families. Physicians round daily to address symptoms as they arise, providing the very best of care available. Also, nurse-to-patient ratios are low, which means our patients are well attended to! And, in the home, our clinicians are available 24/7, proactively assessing how to best manage those we serve, wherever their home might be.”
