Georgetown Home Care Announces Lowest Readmission and Rehospitalization Rate in Company History for 2019
Date:2/19/2020

Today, Georgetown Home Care (GHC) announces its 2019 hospital readmission rate and skilled nursing facility rehospitalization rate are the lowest in the company’s history.

Georgetown Home Care’s hospital readmission rate for 2019 was 4.7 percent, a 29 percent drop year over year. GHC’s skilled nursing facility (SNF) rehospitalization rate was 0 percent in 2019. When compared to the US national averages, these results are remarkable. The US national readmission rate for hospitals in 2019 was 14.7 percent, the US national skilled nursing facility rehospitalization rate was 22.3. Overall Georgetown Home Care has seen a significant decrease in the readmission rate with every partner hospital and SNF it works with, contributing to the great success GHC saw last year; and continues to build on in 2020.

“We work very closely with our partner hospitals and skilled nursing facilities to create good transitions of care from facility to home, said John Bradshaw, CEO of Georgetown Home Care. “Once the patient is home, our team focuses their attention closely on the key causes of preventable readmissions. We are so happy that our efforts were so successful last year.”

Georgetown Home Care knows that in order to have a significant impact on reducing preventable readmissions and rehospitalizations the focus must be on not only the key causes, but also the understanding that as a company it plays a key role in the patient-centric care system. Home care providers have the unique position of being with a client/patient more than any other of his/her care providers. The impact can be very meaningful.

Georgetown Home Care is the premier non-medical home care agency with offices in DC, Maryland and Virginia. Its mission is to ensure a better quality of life for elderly clients and their families by providing dependable and affordable care. Georgetown Home Care is a locally-owned and operated company and is passionate about serving seniors and those in need with hourly and live-in home care services.

Georgetown Home Care is continuing efforts to lower readmissions in 2020.
