The Heritage, a nursing and rehabilitation facility located in Corbin, continues to receive recognition for its commitment to quality care.
The facility, located on Bacon Creek Road, was named the 2011 Eastern District “Facility of the Year” by the Kentucky Association of Health Care Facilities. The award was presented during the association’s annual meeting at the Galt House in Louisville on Nov. 17.
To win the award, the facility had to meet strict criteria that included facility and department goals and objectives, quality patient care, the attitudes and enthusiasm of administrator and staff members, and the facility’s activities and involvement with the local community.
“The Heritage is an outstanding facility that has built a long tradition of commitment to quality care for its residents,” Wanda Meade, the association’s chairwoman, said.
A Heritage employee, Cathy Willis, was named the 2011 Statewide Administrator of the Year.
“Cathy is just one of the many outstanding long term care professionals in Kentucky that provides quality care for our families and neighbors. We all congratulate her for her commitment to quality and for winning this award,” Meade said.
The 2011 Eastern District Environmental Services Award was given to Heritage employees Pauline Lawson, who is the facility’s housekeeping/laundry supervisor.
“Faithful, dedicated employees like Pauline are what makes The Heritage a facility of excellence,” Willis said. “We are all proud of her award and know that no one deserves it more.”
Today (Thursday), the facility’s representatives will be awarded a plaque noting The Heritage’s latest recognition as a 2011-2012 Governor’s Safety and Health Award recipient.
The facility has also been recognized nationally as a Five-Star Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, an annual award based on survey results, staffing and quality measures.
