Great Lakes Caring Announces 2011 Awards of Excellence

Great Lakes Caring is pleased to announce the 2011 Award for Excellence honorees for providing quality care to their residents and patients.

From over twenty-two hundred candidates, seventy-six skilled and assisted living facilities, doctors, and hospitals in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana were selected for this annual award in recognition of their collaborative efforts to help determine in a timely manner home health- and hospice-appropriate patients in order to provide meaningful and helpful quality care.

“It’s important to recognize these partners who committed to their residents’ and their patients’ best interests,” said Great Lakes Caring Chief Executive Officer William Deary. “This is the fourth year Great Lakes Caring has recognized outstanding partners for their care.”

These honorees were chosen based on three specific criteria: 1) believing in the importance of good communications amongst the Great Lakes Caring and partner staffs; 2) keeping in mind the needs of residents/patients and the importance of making timely referrals; and 3) for supporting and understanding of the importance of collaborative care.
