View the SHC 2014 Year In Review
Expansion. Adaptation. Innovation.
These words, in many ways, defined 2014 for Signature HealthCARE. The Revolution brought our total number of locations to 125. We welcomed new centers to the family and took pivotal steps to position SHC as an integrated care network capable of meeting health care needs across the full spectrum of care. We expanded into new business lines while continuing to enhance and invest in existing service offerings.
This Veterans Day, Signature HealthCARE would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of our nation’s military veterans, and those still actively serving. We especially want to thank all of our residents and stakeholders who served our country.
Happy Veterans Day from the Signature family to yours.
For those unable to attend a SHC Hall of Fame ceremony, we’re bringing the celebration to you with four sites that were selected to have their ceremonies broadcast live via our website.
On October 9, 2014, 99 Signature HealthCARE centers across the southeast and midwest will induct over 400 distinguished individuals into the Hall of Fame, in local ceremonies featuring celebrity speakers and presentations about the inductees lives and accomplishments.
The Hall Of Fame is an innovative Quality of Life Program developed by Signature HealthCARE designed to honor the lives and accomplishments of our patients, stakeholders, volunteers, and others who have had such an impact on our centers, communities, and nation.
On October 9, 2014, 87 Signature HealthCARE centers across the southeast and midwest will induct over 350 distinguished individuals into the Hall of Fame, in local ceremonies featuring celebrity speakers and presentations about the inductees lives and accomplishments.
This event, which we believe is the largest and only of its kind, is an opportunity for us to extend gratitude to those who have given so much to our centers, communities and country. They come from all walks of life – war veterans and feminist icons to inventors, professional athletes, philanthropists and much more. We are proud to count them among those we serve and can only continue to benefit from their presence. The Hall of Fame ceremonies are a special day to hold them up as shining examples of human potential.
“This is my first time at Heritage Park. Everybody treated me wonderfully. The Nurses and Aides were wonderful. I’ve come a long way since I’ve been here. Heritage Park is a wonderful place to recover. I would recommend it to anybody!”
~T. Bowden, Rehab Patient
Heritage Park Care and Rehabilitation Center has received accreditation for 2014 as a skilled nursing facility actively performing Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement activities.
The accreditation, presented by independent accreditor Providigm, LLC, demonstrates that the facility is continually assessing patients’ quality of life with regard to concerns such as pain, dignity, respect for patient choice, and quality of care problems such as whether there are enough staff to meet patient needs, weight loss, infections, rehabilitation following acute injury or illness, and prevention of readmissions to hospital.
Gratitude means thankfulness, counting your blessings, noticing simple pleasures and acknowledging everything that you receive. It means learning to live your life as if everything were a miracle and being aware on a continuous basis of how much you’ve been given. Gratitude shifts your focus from what your life lacks to the abundance that is already present. In addition, behavioral and psychological research has shown the surprising life improvements that can stem from the practice of gratitude. Giving thanks makes people happier and more resilient, it strengthens relationships and improves health and it even reduces stress.
“I loved Heritage Park and I’m telling everybody that I’d go back there in a minute if I had to. I had a fabulous experience…the staff, the room, the food. I even gained three pounds!”
~Betty C., Rehab Patient (Rehab to Home in 18 Days)
“When I came in, I was flat on my back and had very little knowledge of where I was. I just celebrated my 97th birthday at Heritage Park and I’m grateful for the development and progress that I’ve made here. Now, I am doing four laps around the building before 8:00am!”
