Providing exceptional patient care is the guiding principle for all that we do at Welch Healthcare & Retirement Group.
Hingham, MA (PRWEB) April 27, 2012
Massachusetts Senior Care Association has selected two Welch Healthcare & Retirement Group nursing center administrators as ambassadors for an ambitious new advocacy program designed to better acquaint Massachusetts legislators with nursing centers and their challenges. Hingham’s Harbor House Rehabilitation & Nursing Center Administrator Susan Jessup and Braintree’s John Scott House Rehabilitation & Nursing Center Administrator Kristen Reilly McHugh are part of the organization’s latest outreach initiative. The Welch Group nursing home administrators are among 47 ambassadors participating in Mass Senior Care’s “Respect & Protect” campaign. The non-profit senior advocacy organization’s goal for the campaign is that the selected administrators will play a pivotal role as they facilitate rehabilitation and nursing center tours so that the legislators may observe first-hand the high quality of care provided by member facilities. There are a total of 47 ambassadors, one or two from each of the 40 State Senate districts.
The “Respect & Protect” campaign demonstrates skilled nursing facilities commitment to quality care and the value of effective advocacy. “I’m pleased that 2 of our administrators were chosen to lead this effort in their areas,” says Paul Casale, vice-president & treasurer, Welch Healthcare & Retirement Group. He adds that “providing exceptional patient care is the guiding principle for all that we do at Welch Healthcare & Retirement Group,” and the “Respect & Protect” campaign is an extension of Welch Group’s efforts to increase participation in advocacy by staff, residents and families.
