Life Care Centers of America’s Hoosier Region recently presented its Team Spirit Award to Susan Wilson, accounts payable and payroll associate at Life Care Center of LaGrange.
The Hoosier Region encompasses eight skilled nursing and rehab facilities in Indiana, representing hundreds of associates. Representatives presented Wilson with the award at a surprise ceremony at the facility.
“I was completely shocked,” Wilson stated. “I usually know everything that is going on in the building, and it was completely hidden from me. There are so many deserving people; I was in complete awe of winning it.”
“Team spirit is not something that is bought or given – it is qualities you possess as a person and reflect to others,” shared Amanda Mainstone, admissions and marketing director at Life Care Center of LaGrange. “Here at our building we have someone who is not only a hard worker but who goes above and beyond the call of duty to help all departments run at top notch.”
Over the course of several months, Wilson not only successfully completed her own job responsibilities but also volunteered to lead the dietary department when it was short-staffed.
“I can’t imagine someone doing both,” said Jeff Brinkman, executive director. “Susan managed to get it all done. She will never know how much her qualities of team spirit have helped make this building a success.”
Life Care Center of LaGrange, located at 770N 075E, is one of 15 skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities in Indiana operated or managed by Life Care Centers of America.
