On December 5th, the Washington Health Care Association honored two residents of Queen Anne Healthcare – a nationally recognized Avamere Family of Companies skilled nursing and long-term care center located at 2717 Dexter Ave North in Seattle, WA. The two residents received the WHCA Silver Spotlight Award during a reception held at the Governor’s Mansion in Olympia, WA.
The Silver Spotlight Award is designed to honor remarkable achievements and contributions to community and country from individuals who reside in assisted living and skilled nursing centers throughout the state of Washington.
“We have benefitted greatly from the effort and leadership that the aging population has provided our country,” remarked Robin Dale, president and CEO of WHCA, in a press release distributed by WHCA. “While many individual contributions have been nationally recognized for their impact to our nation’s great history, there are countless others in our care that have inspired others and made and immeasurable difference.”
The two Queen Anne Healthcare Silver Spotlight Award recipients will be featured in a 2015 pictorial calendar with the other 12 statewide winners.
