In 2013, we also earned our second Excellence in Action Award for “superior commitment to customer service” from My InnerView, a product of the National Research Corporation. The first time we won the award was in 2008 when the largest skilled nursing facility database in the United States compared 2,759 other nursing homes through the nation and ranked the top 10 percent nationally for customer satisfaction.
Maybe we earned these distinctions by offering personalized and individual care to each and every resident. Or maybe we earned these distinctions by going out of our way to make nutritious, homemade lunches and snacks for our senior residents. Allegan County Medical Care Community also offers pet therapy – that may have also played a role. But, in the end, it’s not about awards. As one of the top ranked skilled nursing facilities Allegan County trusts, it’s about performing a basic duty to each and every resident. We would expect excellence for our loved ones, so we deliver the same to yours. It’s a simple philosophy, but it works. We want our residents to think of this community as their home.
We are among the best skilled nursing facilities Allegan County has to offer. Stop by and see for yourself. You’ll feel the love and warmth throughout our hallways. We sure do.
