LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending At Home Care Inc. upon the occasion of
receiving  the  2013  NBT  Bank Distinguished Business of the Year Award
from the Otsego County Chamber of Commerce

WHEREAS, It is the practice of this Legislative Body to  recognize  that
the  quality  and  character  of life in the communities across New York
State are reflective of the concerned and  dedicated  efforts  of  those
organizations  and  individuals  who devote themselves to the welfare of
the community and its citizenry; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its  long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to commend At
Home  Care Inc. upon the occasion of receiving the 2013 NBT Bank Distin-
guished Business of the Year Award from the  Otsego  County  Chamber  of
Commerce,  to  be  celebrated  at its annual dinner on Friday, March 22,
2013, in Oneonta, New York; and
  WHEREAS, At Home Care Inc. also received numerous nominations for  the
NBT  Bank  Distinguished  Business  of  the  Year; the service has had a
substantial impact in the community; and
  WHEREAS, At  Home  Care  Inc.  demonstrates  successful  business  and
economic  growth;  it  provides nursing, physical therapy and other home
health care to about 800 patients; it was founded in 1987 as  a  collab-
oration between what was then called M.T. Bassett Hospital, now known as
Bassett Medical Center, in Cooperstown and A.O. Fox Memorial Hospital of
Oneonta; and
  WHEREAS,  Both  are  now  part  of the Bassett Healthcare Network; the
nonprofit has nearly 200 employees, most of them spread  throughout  the
four  counties  it  serves,  including  Otsego,  Delaware,  Herkimer and
Chenango; and
  WHEREAS, The award is especially validating for the founding  members,
Fox  Hospital  and  Bassett  Hospital,  which  had  the foresight in the
mid-1980s to recognize the value of a home health care  organization  to
their continuum of care; and
  WHEREAS,  The success of At Home Care Inc. is in direct correlation to
the efforts of its administration and staff, whose involvement  is,  and
always has been, characterized by an impressive commitment, an unbridled
enthusiasm,  and an uncompromising standard of excellence in all endeav-
ors on behalf of the organization and the population it serves; and
  WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that when  organiza-
tions  of  such noble aims and accomplishments are brought to our atten-
tion, they should be celebrated and recognized by all  the  citizens  of
the great State of New York; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
commend At Home Care Inc. upon the occasion of receiving  the  2013  NBT
Bank  Distinguished  Business  of  the Year Award from the Otsego County
Chamber of Commerce; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That copies of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Laurie Neander, CEO, At Home Care Inc.
