Judith Karman Bristol Hospice has been named a 2016 Hospice Honors recipient by Deyta Analytics, a division of HEALTHCAREfirst, the leading provider of Web-based home health and hospice software, coding and outsourced billing services, and advanced analytics.

Hospice Honors is a prestigious program that recognizes hospices providing the highest level of quality as measured from the caregiver’s point of view. The JKBH is one of only 100 hospices so honored in the U.S. in 2016.

Hospice Honors is a landmark compilation of hospices that provide the best patient and caregiver experiences,” said Bobby Robertson, President and CEO of HEALTHCAREfirst. “I am extremely proud of the Judith Karman Bristol Hospice for achieving this highest of honors, and I congratulate them on their success.”
