The nonprofit has nearly 200 employees, most of them spread throughout the four counties it serves — Otsego, Delaware, Herkimer and Chenango — said Laurie Neander, At Home Care’s chief executive officer. The service plans to expand into Schoharie County, beginning next month, she added.
“It’s a tremendous honor,” she said. “It’s means a lot to many people.”
The award is especially validating for the founding members, Fox Hospital and Bassett Hospital, which “had the foresight in the mid-’80s to recognize the value of a home health care organization to their continuum of care,” she said.
The awards will be formally presented at the chamber’s annual dinner March 22 at the Hunt Union Ballroom on the campus of the State University College at Oneonta.
