Interim HealthCare Recognized At National Association of Home Care & Hospice Annual Meeting

October 22, 2008 // // Sunrise, Florida, - Interim HealthCare, the nation's leading provider of home care, hospice and health care staffing, was recognized at the National Association of Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) Annual Meeting by opening keynote speaker, Author, Broadcast Journalist with CNN, Inside Politics, NBC, CBS and Humanitarian Judy Woodruff.

During her remarks to more than three thousand home care and hospice providers attending the National Association of Home Care & Hospice 27th Annual Meeting in Ft. Lauderdale, FL on October 12th, Woodruff acknowledged Interim HealthCare franchisee Stephen Smith for the wonderful care his company has provided for her son over the last three and a half years. Smith, who has been an Interim HealthCare franchisee for 24 years, provides home care and health care staffing services for residents of Southeastern North Carolina through his 8 offices.

Commenting on the recognition given to Smith, Interim HealthCare Inc. CEO and President Kathleen Gilmartin said, "I'm thrilled Steve was publically acknowledged for the outstanding care he provides to his patients. His commitment and dedication to making sure patients and their families receive the highest level of service are truly an inspiration to everyone in our industry. Steve also serves in a leadership role within our franchise network as well as in his state association. We're proud to work with him and his exemplary team."

Smith commented on the recognition, "While we appreciate the public recognition among our peers, the true gratification has been to see a number of severely disabled young people roll their wheelchairs across the stage at graduation in recent years at the college we serve."
