American Senior Communities Honors Employees for Excellence and Dedication

 Nicole Turner, a certified nursing assistant at Westview Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, was among the 88 frontline employees of American Senior Communities centers statewide honored for providing stellar service to patients and residents.

In addition to nursing assistants, honorees included nurses, therapists, food service workers, housekeeping staff and others who consistently demonstrate a commitment to excellence, dedication to his or her job, a positive attitude, and a whatever-it-takes passion for customer service.

They were recognized during ASC’s 18th Annual Quest for Excellence awards, which highlight the professional and caring service expected of ASC’s 10,000 employees across the state. The awards night was held at the J.W. Marriott in Downtown Indianapolis. Keynote speaker was Jerald Cosey, who heads a ministry dedicated to improving seniors’ quality of life. Cosey is also executive director of Greenwood Meadows, one of nearly 90 communities operated statewide by ASC.

“ASC’s Quest for Excellence Award winners promote and maintain the ASC culture of caring for others while demonstrating the highest level of integrity,” said ASC Chief Executive Officer Donna Kelsey. “These exceptional people embody ASC’s commitment by keeping its values of compassion, attentiveness, relationships and excellence as their highest priorities.”

ASC provides a variety of services, including Moving Forward Rehabilitation, Auguste’s Cottage Memory Care, Skilled Nursing Care, Long Term Care, Respite and Hospice Care, and living centers, including Garden Homes and Independent Living Apartments.
