Amedisys Celebrates More Than 7,000 Nurses During National Nurses Week

BATON ROUGE, La., May 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amedisys, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMED), one of the nation’s leading home healthcare, hospice and personal care companies, celebrates National Nurses Week by honoring more than 7,000 nurses who call the company home.

National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6 and ends on May 12, Florence Nightingale’s birthday. Amedisys is proud to recognize and applaud the home health, hospice and personal care nurses who provide compassionate, clinically distinct care throughout the 38 states we serve.

“Amedisys is a company of caregivers with nurses as a key component of our success and our excellent patient care,” stated President and CEO Paul Kusserow. “I’m honored to support and inspire these outstanding professionals so they, in turn, can support our patients in living their lives with dignity where they most want to be – at home.”

Amedisys recognizes that the modern home healthcare professional is more than just a clinician – nurses in the home health, hospice and personal care fields are coaches, mutual problem solvers, relationship managers, advocates, translators, collaborators and so much more.

“At Amedisys, home health and hospice nursing is more than a job or a profession – it’s a higher calling,” stated Donna Massie, Senior Vice President of Clinical Operations. “Because of our nurses and clinicians, our patients are better prepared to live safely and independently wherever they call home.”
