Adventist Home Health Receives National Quality Award
For the fifth year in a row, the Home Health division of Adventist HealthCare Home Care Services has been named a Top Agency by HomeCare Elite. This national quality award is presented to the top 25 percent of Medicare-certified agencies in the United States.
“It is an honor to receive this recognition based on the quality care and great experience we provide to our patients,” said Keith Ballenger, vice president of Adventist HealthCare Home Care Services.

Making Homes Healing Places
Adventist HealthCare has expanded its partnership with a local nonprofit organization, Rebuilding Together Montgomery County, to launch a program that provides free home modifications and repairs for low-income patients.
Through the program, Adventist HealthCare White Oak Medical Center will identify patients who need home modifications, such as wheelchair ramps, but cannot afford them. Adventist HealthCare will provide $25,000 to support the modifications in approximately 12 patients’ homes through Rebuilding Together.
Earlier this year, Hennie Brown Jr., 84, of Silver Spring, Maryland, was able to join his wife, Matilda, upstairs in their three-story home for the first time in a year thanks to a wheelchair lift installed through this program. Hennie became wheelchair-bound about a year ago due to cancer and spinal stenosis.
