On October 19th, Porchlight CEO Holly Chaffee was recognized as a 2017 Healthcare Hero by publication BusinessWest & Healthcare News during a special gala event at The Starting Gate at GreatHorse in Hampden. Chaffee was recognized as the honoree as the Health/Wellness Administrator of the year.
The honor comes in recognition of Chaffee’s innovative work to steer Porchlight strongly through an ever challenging health care landscape for free-standing, not-for-profit, community-based organizations like Porchlight. BusinessWest & Healthcare News highlighted Chaffee’s bold leadership to rebrand the former Lee Regional VNA to Porchlight, the merger with the former Chicopee VNA and Great To Be Home Care, and exceptional patient outcomes that make Porchlight the clear choice for quality in Western Massachusetts.
Porchlight is the only Western Massachusetts agency to achieve and maintain a five-star rating from the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) since it began rating home care agencies on the five-star scale.
