Carol Anders, director of Home Health and Hospice services at Cody Regional Health, said the staff’s dedication to delivering personal care and going the extra mile for patients has helped achieve the HomeCare Elite recognition over these past years. “Our goal is to keep people out of the hospital or emergency room. We tell our patients to call our team if they need something and it’s not an emergency. Our patients know we are there for them,” Anders said.
