Three honored by American Senior Communities | Health
American Senior Communities, a statewide provider of Senior Rehabilitation and Memory Care, recently honored key employees, including two Evansville employees, with the “Quest for Excellence Award.” Here's the story from ASC:
Mary Barnett, certified nursing assistant at Columbia Healthcare Center, Kim Sulawske, physical therapy assistant at North Park Nursing Center and Vicki Bryant, dietary aide at Good Samaritan Home and Rehabilitation Center in Oakland City, received the “Quest for Excellence” Award because they demonstrated a commitment to excellence, dedication to their jobs, a positive attitude, and a “whatever it takes” passion for customer service. Based upon these key performance areas, they were among 63 highly qualified employees statewide selected by their peers to represent their buildings at this prestigious dinner.
Lisa Manley, of Columbia Healthcare Center, was named Marketing Leader of the Year.
They were honored at an exclusive dinner at The Fountains in Carmel, which included a speech by four-time Olympian Ruben Gonzalez.
“This year’s ‘Quest for Excellence Award’ recipients serve as examples of what a strong work ethic and passion for excellence can accomplish for a company,” said Dan Benson, chief operating officer for American Senior Communities. “These exceptional employees have a strong impact on our company, not only in the quality of care they provide to our residents, but also by their unsurpassed commitment to customer service. We recognize these employees because they represent the spirit of the core principles and values of American Senior Communities. As a service industry, our greatest resource is our employees.”
Benson also stated that, “these employees are truly the physical representation of excellence and this award validates all of the efforts they’ve put into serving our customers. They are truly an inspiration for all others in the health care industry to follow.”
