Memphis, TN – (July 14, 2014) – Cindy Branch, RN, Meritan’s Associate Vice President for Health Services, has been selected to represent Tennessee as one of the nation’s Top 50 home care and hospice nurses by the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) and the Home Healthcare Nurses Association (HHNA).
As Tennessee’s representative, Branch will be recognized at the NAHC’s annual meeting in October in Phoenix, AZ. The winner of a nationwide contest to select the Top Nurse also will be announced at that meeting.
As Associate Vice President for Health Services, Branch has oversight of Meritan’s nursing programs, including home health, private duty nursing and medical residential homes.
“This is one of the highest honors to receive in nursing and all of us at Meritan are thrilled with Cindy’s selection,’’ said Melanie Keller, president of Meritan, Inc. “She is certainly deserving of this recognition and her honor is a reflection of the compassionate work everyone at Meritan does every single day.”
The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) is a nonprofit organization that represents the nation's 33,000 home care and hospice organizations. NAHC also advocates for the more than two million nurses, therapists, aides and other caregivers that annually provide in-home services to about 12 million Americans who are infirm, chronically ill, and disabled.
