VCHS Home Health and Hospice earns superior rating

ORD, Neb. – Valley County Health System (VCHS) Home Health and Hospice has been recognized by Strategic Healthcare Programs (SHP) as a “Superior Performer” for achieving an overall patient satisfaction score that ranked in the top 20% of all eligible SHP clients for the 2018 calendar year.
