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 80%.

90% said they would “definitely” recommend Hospice of Northwest Ohio vs. 84% 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 six 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.
