Hospice Compassus Receives Deyta Hospice Honors

Local Hospice Holds National Ranked Elite Status for Exceptional Patient and Caregiver Experience


PAYSON, Ariz. – The Hospice Compassus program serving Payson and the surrounding areas is proud to be named a recipient of the Hospice Honors Elite Award given by Deyta, a data-gathering company that partners with thousands of hospice, home health, human services and other healthcare organizations. The award recognizes hospice agencies that continuously provide the highest level of satisfaction through their care as measured from the caregiver’s point of view.


“This is a great honor, and we are humbled to be recognized for the quality of hospice care we provide,” said Mary Jane Rogers, Executive Director for Hospice Compassus – Payson. “The Hospice Compassus team strives to serve patients and their families with the highest level of compassion, integrity and excellence, and this honor is a true testament to those efforts.”


“We are passionate about the work that we do, and place our patients’ care and satisfaction above all else,” said James Schouten, MD, Medical Director of Hospice Compassus – Payson. “This award not only validates the work we do but also inspires all of us to extend our efforts even further.”


This notable recognition is determined by using Deyta Family Evaluation of Hospice Care (Deyta FEHC) survey results from approximately 1,700 partnering hospices contained in Deyta’s FEHC database for the evaluation period October 2013 through September 2014. Deyta identified Hospice Honors recipients by evaluating the performance of hospice organizations on a set of 18 satisfaction indicator measures. Elite status honors hospices scoring above the Deyta National Average on 100% of the evaluated questions.
