Happy Holidays
By Rick Miller, CEO

As 2021 ends, I ponder the great work and accomplishments of the last year. I am filled with gratitude for each one of you, for giving your all to Avamere and to your co-workers, living each one of our core values, and showing true compassion and caring for everyone you interact with.

In celebration, I’d like to recognize some achievements at Team Avamere.

Notable achievements

Three Avamere Living communities earned the Bronze Commitment to Quality Award and Avamere Rehabilitation of Eugene earned the Silver Achievement in Quality Award from the American Health Care Association.

Twenty-two Avamere Living communities, including 13 community-based care locations and nine skilled nursing facilities, earned Pinnacle Quality Insight’s Customer Experience Award. Receiving this award during COVID-19 proves our team’s resilient dedication to providing the same level of quality care with utmost respect for our patients and residents.

Five Avamere Living skilled nursing teams earned 5-star Medicare ratings for their buildings, an incredible achievement showcasing true commitment to quality care.

The Oregon Health Care Association recognized four incredible employees for their service in the senior healthcare industry. Dr. Elizabeth Burns with the Special Services Award, Sara Sutherland as Leader of the Year, Troy Perry as Administrator of the Year, and Hannah Johnson with the Enrichment of Life Award.

In addition to these prestigious awards, many communities have earned awards in their local community. Thank you all for enhancing lives.

Passion for the quality of people’s lives

Some of the work our team members do doesn’t come with an award but is just as valuable. It’s the humble acts of kindness.

I have seen team members making a difference for others. From our team members joining our efforts in diversity, equity, and inclusion, volunteering their time and money in their local areas, picking up extra shifts for co-workers, and more.

One of these employees is Alloyce Leonard, a CNA with Richmond Beach Rehab in Seattle, Washington. Alloyce opened a school in his home country, Kenya, for children whose parents and caregivers cannot afford it. Through his generous efforts, Alloyce’s school serves over 60 children.

This work exemplifies one of our core values, passion for the quality of people’s lives, a core value our employees embody every day.

Thank you for your service – for those at Avamere, in your local area, and around the world.

Happy holidays

As we enter the holiday season, I hope you feel the warmth and kindness from those around you. I hope you find moments of joy with those you love.

I am truly thankful to be part of your team. Avamere would not be what we are today without you. Thank you for your incredible selfless work this year, and I look forward to the difference we’ll make together in the years to come.

Happy holidays to you and your families!
