TOLEDO, Ohio, Jan. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- HCR ManorCare takes great pride in its helpful, caring and responsive employees who are committed to providing quality care to our patients and residents. Our employees around the country are regularly honored at their locations by patients, residents, family members and fellow employees for the care and caring they provide. Our company has taken the recognition a step higher in launching a program that honors on a quarterly basis an HCR ManorCare Champion of Caring, a national champion across all service lines.
2018 Fourth-Quarter Champion Announced
"I am pleased to announce that our 2018 fourth-quarter HCR ManorCare Champion of Caring is Yvonne Cunningham, resident caregiver/med tech at Arden Courts of King of Prussia, Pennsylvania," said David Parker, executive vice president and chief operating officer. "Yvonne has never let anything compromise the care of her residents and continually impresses families with her helpful, caring and responsive dedication." Yvonne has been a celebrated caregiver at Arden Courts of King of Prussia for more than 10 years. Although already credentialed in a variety of areas, she continues to advance her education. She moves easily among roles, and no job is too big or small. Yvonne brings a "wow" factor to the memory care center's census culture, always highlighting why Arden Courts will be the perfect fit for a potential resident, which has been key to many move-ins. Her engaging personality has helped her house to remain fully occupied most of the time. She leads the center's shadowing program and is a valued mentor. Yvonne is 100 percent about making the residents' lives better and proof that one person can make a difference.
Yvonne was chosen from among finalists representing each of HCR ManorCare's five operating divisions. Each of the finalists had already distinguished her- or himself by being chosen a Divisional Champion of Caring from among thousands of employees. Divisional finalists not chosen as the national champion in the previous three quarters joined five new divisional finalists in the selection pool for the 2018 fourth quarter. The five new finalists for the fourth quarter were:
- Stephen Fulse, Medical Records Assistant, ManorCare Health Services – Hinsdale, Illinois
- Dwayne George, Lead Floor Tech, ManorCare Rehab Center – Decatur, Georgia
- Carla Nelson, Social Worker, Heartland Hospice of Broward, Plantation, Florida
- Antonio Rosario, Laundry Attendant, ManorCare Health Services – King of Prussia, Pennsylvania
- Deborah Taylor, Resident Caregiver, Arden Courts of Wayne, New Jersey
Each of our finalists had the qualities we were looking for in an HCR ManorCare Champion of Caring. We congratulate Yvonne, our 2018 fourth-quarter HCR ManorCare Champion of Caring, and also her peer finalists. All exhibit the qualities of champion caregivers.
