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.
