AHHC members serve 400,000 recipients and employ 100,000 North Carolina residents.
“We are delighted to continue our partnership and friendship with ACHC. The organizations have worked together since the AHHC assisted in the establishment of ACHC in 1986, and we are pleased to see the same quality and patient-focused values continue to thrive at ACHC. The partnership has benefited our members, and our number one goal is to offer quality resources to providers of home care, home health, and hospice services,” said Tim Rogers, President and CEO of AHHC. “In fact, AHHC members receive discounts on Accreditation services through ACHC. Not only are our agency members pursuing higher quality through Accreditation with ACHC, but they are saving money thanks to our partnership.”
