Kusserow, President and Chief Executive Officer stated, “I am proud of our third quarter results and the strong execution of our team. We are pleased with the growth trends we are seeing in home health, after experiencing some obstacles in the last few quarters. Our strategies around home health business development hiring, retention and training are delivering the desired results, and now we must continue that momentum. Our hospice segment continues its stellar performance, with 18% revenue growth compared to the third quarter of 2016. Our personal care segment has built out an impressive platform for growth in under two years and has integrated tuck-in acquisitions to fill out its footprint in Massachusetts. Most importantly, our clinical and outcomes metrics continue to improve as we pursue the goal of clinical distinction for our patients, referral sources and payors. On the regulatory side, we are pleased with the CMS decision not to finalize the home health groupings model. While we are supportive of payment reform in home health, we must ensure that any reform is designed such that patient access to home health services is not negatively impacted. Finally, thanks to our team of over 17,000 employees for continuing to provide excellent care to our patients.”We urge caution in considering the current trends disclosed in this press release.
