Undeterred by recent blizzards and with a commitment to care, the best home health workers in the state and the most innovative home health agencies were recently honored at the 2015 Home Care Innovations Showcase & Star Awards ceremony hosted by the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts at the Revere Hotel in Boston.

Among those honored was Cara Chevalier, MD, a family medicine physician at Hallmark Health and medical director at Hallmark Health Visiting Nurse Association and Hospice, as the 2015 Home Care “Physician of the Year” by the Home Care Alliance, which represents 200 home health and home care agencies and nearly 30,000 workers across Massachusetts.

“This year, especially, home health agencies and their employees deserve recognition for their dedication to ensuring their patients and clients are healthy and safe at home,” said Home Care Alliance Executive Director Patricia Kelleher. “This event is a chance to say ‘thank you’ to all home care agencies and workers across the state and shine a spotlight on all that the home care industry is doing to respond to the elder demographic boom and health system reform in Massachusetts.”

The Physician of the Year award is award is presented each year to a physician or nurse practitioner who has demonstrated active involvement in the home health field and outspoken support for health care delivered in the home.

Dr. Chevalier practices at Hallmark Health Medical Associates Family Health Center located at 178 Savin Street in Malden. She graduated from the University of Minnesota School of Medicine and completed her medical internship and residency at Tufts Family Medicine.

“Dr. Chevalier is a strong advocate and believer of keeping patients at home and understands the need for quality medical care at home,” said Diane Farraher-Smith, Hallmark Health System vice president and president of the Hallmark Health Visiting Nurse Association and Hospice. “She readily makes home visits for complex medical and psychosocial needs of the patients and the families and she has built up a significant medical home based practice.”
