Louisville, Ky. – May 8, 2018 – International culture change organization Eden Alternative Registry recognized Signature HealthCARE for blazing the trail in culture change and leading the industry. At its annual conference in Atlanta the Eden Registry presented Signature HealthCARE and Angie McAllister with the 2017 Eden Champion Award.
“We made a choice at the beginning of our culture change journey to put our residents and stakeholders first and to hold true to each of our sacred six values,” Joe Steier, Signature HealthCARE CEO and President, said. “Not only are we leading the industry in culture change, we are transcending expectations for the residents and families we serve each day.”
Since beginning the journey of culture change, Signature has traveled on vacation with over 1,000 residents, trained many leaders as Eden mentors and over 50 Signature locations have earned accreditation and their name to the Eden Alternative Registry, the national list of certified culture change nursing homes.
“It’s such an honor to win an Eden Champion award for pioneering person-directed care. Throughout this journey, I have personally seen passionate, caring stakeholders make a difference in the lives of our elders,” Angie McAllister, Director of Cultural Transformation, said.
The Eden Champion award recognizes individuals and organizations for ongoing advocacy and growth of the culture changing Eden Alternative philosophy. The honor is awarded every two years to an organization or individual from across the world.
