Nazareth Home Named 2023 ‘Best of Kentucky’ in Nursing and Rehabilitation by KAHCF
The Kentucky Association of Health Care Facilities/Kentucky Center for Assisted Living (KAHCF/KCAL) recently honored Nazareth Home with a prestigious 2023 Best of Kentucky in Nursing and Rehabilitation Award at their annual banquet. The Best of Kentucky – Nursing and Rehabilitation honorees are among an elite group of leaders and must possess a CMS star rating of four or higher to apply for the award. Across Kentucky, 35 organizations were recognized, including both of Nazareth Home’s facilities, with the distinction.
In addition, Nazareth Home’s Director of Clinical Services, Kim Hobson, was recognized individually with a Leadership Award for her contributions to Nazareth Home and the long-term care field.
“We remain focused on helping elders explore the joy of living, and recognition like this confirms that by creating a supportive environment of person-centered care where aging adults can thrive, we are accomplishing our objectives,” said Mary Haynes, president/CEO of Nazareth Home. “This award is for all of our employees who work selflessly and diligently to make a difference each day in the lives that they touch.”
Long-term care providers attended KAHCF/KCAL’s Annual Meeting & Expo, where the awards were announced on Nov. 16. They attended general sessions addressing strategies to cope with stress on the job, hiring and retaining quality staff, and regulatory issues. On Nov. 15, KCAL held its “KCAL Day” for Assisted Living Communities. More than 100 vendors exhibited during the expo showcasing the latest innovations to providing quality care.“We are honored to recognize these deserving providers at the top of their class,” said KAHCF/KCAL interim president Ruby Jo Lubarsky. “During a tumultuous time of staffing shortages, our providers have faced these challenges with innovation and positivity. Each winner and their team have kept their residents’ quality of life at the heart of their work.”
