LAFAYETTE, La., Dec. 12, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LHC Group Inc. (Nasdaq:LHCG), a national provider of home health and hospice services, has been honored as one of the nation's most successful companies by two national publications.

For the fifth consecutive year, LHC Group has been named one of "America's 100 Best Small Companies" by Forbes magazine. In addition, LHC Group has been recognized as one of the nation's "100 Fastest-Growing Companies" by Fortune magazine for the second consecutive year.

Keith G. Myers, chairman and CEO, said the national recognition is a tribute to the skill and compassion of the company's 8,000 employees at more than 300 locations in 19 states.

"At LHC Group, everything we do is centered on one principle: It's all about helping people," Myers said. "We've grown from a single home health agency in rural Louisiana into a national healthcare provider serving 80,000 patients every year, because we've never forgotten a simple fact - we're here to provide high-quality, compassionate health care to the men and women who put their trust in us."

Earlier this year, LHC Group also earned national recognition for its quality of care. Nearly 40 percent of the company's home health providers are rated among the nation's 2011 "HomeCare Elite," an independent ranking of home health quality and performance. The 2011 HomeCare Elite list, compiled annually by OCS HomeCare and DecisionHealth, names the top 25 percent of home health agencies in the United States.

LHC Group is also the only home health company in the country pursuing 100 percent Joint Commission accreditation. Established in 1988, The Joint Commission's home care accreditation program addresses a home care organization's performance in specific areas to help ensure patient care and services are provided in a safe manner.
