Celebrating Excellence Award
The annual Celebrating Excellence Awards Program is designed to honor the best and brightest in long term care. Awards are presented to long term care employees and facilities that meet and exceed specific criteria that contribute to quality long term care for our state’s elderly and disabled citizens.
We recognize employees statewide who have consistently exemplified a commendable level of caregiving, dedication, and professionalism in caring for their residents. The program also honors providers that have designed and implemented an outstanding program that has demonstrated success in improving resident quality of life/care, enhancing employee development and relationships or engaging community members or groups in facility life. We also present awards to providers that are making significant strides towards achieving and maintaining quality through specific quality improvement processes.
To be considered for the award, nominees must work for an MHCA member and meet criteria specific to each award category. An independent panel of judges selects the winners who are recognized during a special luncheon each Fall.
