Charleston, W.Va. – American Medical Facilities Management (AMFM) had another successful year at the West Virginia Health Care Association (WVHCA) Annual Awards Gala with three centers winning five of the 11 awards given out to the state’s best long-term care and assisted living centers.
Clarksburg Nursing & Rehabilitation Center
Clarksburg Nursing & Rehabilitation Center (N&RC) received awards for their community service efforts and for Sharon Grimm, who received the Director of Nursing of the Year Award. Grimm has worked in the long-term care profession for 12 years, and her emphasis on teamwork, open-door policy, and support among the nursing teams to provide quality care has made her a trusted leader for the center and member of the community.
“Project Give Back” worked closely with United Technical Center’s Certified Nursing Assistant Program and participated in Relay for Life, Alzheimer’s Walk, the Buddy Walk supporting the National Down Syndrome Society, health fair screenings, blood drives, and other community activities.
Clarksburg N&RC employees came together for an employee who became ill and had to retire. They raised more than $9,500 through various facility and community fundraisers to help cover her medical costs.
E. A. Hawse Nursing & Rehabilitation Center
E.A. Hawse N&RC also was the recipient of awards for the state’s best Ancillary Employee of the Year and Distinguished service Award to Jon Hoff, a local community member with the Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legion. Hoff is a community leader and focuses on events honoring military veterans at E. A. Hawse N&RC and throughout the community.
Additionally, ancillary employee Carolyn Funk of the Environmental department was honored with the Individual Excellence Award. Funk was an employee of E. A. Hawse N&RC prior to the facility opening for admissions more than 30 years ago.
Funk has been instrumental in the safety committee and the incredible record of having no-lost time injuries for more than 12 years.
