Cypress Basin Hospice has been named a 2017 Hospice Honors Elite recipient by Deyta Analytics, one of the nation’s prominent data gathering companies. Hospice Honors is a prestigious program that recognizes hospices providing the highest level of quality as measured from the caregiver’s point of view.

“Hospice Honors is a landmark compilation of hospices that provide the best patient and caregiver experiences,” said J. Kevin Porter of HEALTHCAREfirst. “I am extremely proud of Cypress Basin Hospice for achieving this highest of honors and I congratulate them on their success.”

Data for the evaluation is gathered from over 1,700 hospices. Only a small select group receive the Honors Elite recognition.

Nelda Davis, RN, president of the Cypress Basin Board of Directors said, “A paradigm shift of viewing palliative care or hospice as a gift instead of seeing it as giving up has the potential to change the way we experience advanced age. This is our goal at CBH with education and community support.”

Tonya Taylor, RN, MSN, MBA, COS-C, vice president of the Board of Directors, states, “Hospice Honors Elite is a huge honor for the Cypress Basin Hospice team! This national acknowledgement is evidence of the quality and excellence in all aspects of the care delivery. This prestigious recognition demonstrates the team effort to achieve Cypress Basin Hospice’s mission “honoring life by providing comfort, care and compassion.”

Cypress Basin Hospice is the Christian faith-based community owned non-profit hospice serving the 16 counties of northeast Texas. It was created by citizens of northeast Texas in 1986. It is known not only for its quality of care, but as well for its unconditional charity, its service to pediatric patients and its community outreach programs for grief recovery, especially its day camps for kids, Camp Brave Heart.
