November 2017 Customer Service Superstar | Stephanie Etchison

Congratulations to Stephanie Etchison from Paris Health Care!  You are the IMG November Customer Service Superstar!

Stephani Etchison has been with Paris Healthcare Center for 5 years and has been a dedicated employee who always puts residents first. Stephani goes above and beyond for all our residents. Stephani is a very kind hearted, loving person. Stephani comes in on her days off to take professional pictures of residents, for example on makeover days and the Halloween photoshoot. Stephani is a staple at Paris Healthcare Center. This year for the residents Thanksgiving dinner, Stephani brought in clothes, hair supplies and styling tools. She took time after her shift to work on each resident to make sure they looked their very best. Stephani donated the clothing items to several of our residents.

Facility of the Year 2017 | Keosauqua Health Care Center

Keosauqua Health Care Center

“Tough “times don’t last, tough people do” For one facility despite tough times they continue to remain “Resident’s First, Employees Always” every hour of every day and continue to be a profitable and top choice building not just in their region, but in the state as a whole.  We are honored to nominate Keosauqua Healthcare Center as facility of the year. 

Keosauqua is one of the newer members of the IMG family but within that short time they have been outstanding leaders in senior care and community involvement.

Customer Service Superstar of the Year 2017 | Sam Conner

Sam Conner, Cloverleaf

Cloverleaf’s Health Care in Knightsville, Indiana would like to nominate CNA, Sam Conner,  for IMG customer service superstar 2017.  Sam Conner is a CNA who has worked at Cloverleaf for 6 years.   Sam has been nominated for her supporting role to a resident who has a rare neurological disease that has affected not just the resident herself but also has affected the resident’s family too.  It is often said that working with the elderly “requires the patience of a saint.”   When in reality it requires compassion, humanity, kindness and the patience of a saint.

Director of Nursing of the Year 2017 | Jenell Dixon

Jenell Dixon, Kendallville Manor

Jenell has been at Kendallville Manor since August 2011. She started as a part time RN and accepted the DON position in 2012. In a smaller facility like Kendallville Manor, the Director of Nursing often wears several hats and Jenell is a superstar at it!! Her emotional commitment drives her to work as a charge nurse if the scheduled nurse has a family emergency or when an unexpected illness arises; she has worked as a C.N.A. and her dedication shows every time she helps any department when needed. When she overhears a C.N.A. asking for extra help, many times I have heard her say,“I can help! I’ll be right there!”
