Quality Data

Here are some of the ways we measure up.

Favorable Rating of Patient Care

84% of Hospice of Northwest Ohio respondents gave our care a 9/10 rating (on a scale of 1 – 10, with 10 being highest) vs. a national average score of 81%.

90% said they would “definitely” recommend Hospice of Northwest Ohio vs. 85% nationally.

Specially Certified Staff

In 2017, 70% of our eligible clinical staff – including nurses and aides – were specially certified in hospice and palliative care. This compares to a 34% average nationwide, as reported in 2015 survey results from the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association.

Dedicated Hospice and Palliative Care Physicians

Unlike many area hospices who have a part-time medical director, Hospice of Northwest Ohio has six physicians and eight advanced practice nurses on staff whose careers are fully devoted to end-of-life care.

Robust Bereavement Program

Hospice of Northwest Ohio has five specially trained and credentialed bereavement counselors who offer a wide array of services. This compares with other agencies who fulfill their Medicare requirement to provide bereavement programming by simply handing out literature or providing limited counseling.

"When my husband received both home, in-house and nursing home care: very impressed and feel good about how well he was treated, always kept clean, (very important) and attended to. Staff were always pleasant with good humor and cheerful. They were very knowledgeable, about all care needed. Thank you from the entire family."
