Company Release - 5/7/2018 7:00 AM ET

BATON ROUGE, La., May 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amedisys, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMED), one of the nation’s leading home healthcare, hospice and personal care companies, celebrates National Nurses Week by honoring more than 5,700 nurses who call the company home.

National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6 and ends on May 12, Florence Nightingale’s birthday. Amedisys is proud to recognize and applaud the home health, hospice and personal care nurses who provide compassionate, clinically distinct care throughout the 34 states we serve.

“Amedisys is a company of caregivers with nurses as a key component of our success and our excellent patient care,” stated President and CEO Paul Kusserow. “I’m honored to support and inspire these outstanding professionals so they, in turn, can support our patients in living their lives with dignity where they most want to be – at home.”

Amedisys recognizes that the modern home healthcare professional is more than just a clinician – nurses in the home health, hospice and personal care fields are coaches, mutual problem solvers, relationship managers, advocates, translators, collaborators, medication managers and so much more.

“Thanks to our nurses, seniors are now better prepared than ever to live safely and independently at home for perhaps longer than they expected,” stated Chief Clinical Officer Susan Sender. “As a result, our patients are more likely to avoid admission and readmission to hospitals and nursing homes.”
