Two local employees of American Senior Communities (ASC) have been honored with the ASC Quest for Excellence award for their outstanding service to patients and residents.
With close to 11,000 employees across the state, the traditional Quest for Excellence recognition celebrates a team member from each community whose work exemplifies a caring and concerned attitude that goes beyond the normal expectation of their job. As part of ASC’s most coveted employee recognition, Quest winners are honored for their dedication to their role and exemplification of ASC’s core values: Compassion, Accountability, Relationships and Excellence. Honorees include clinical staff, therapists and culinary staff, as well as business office, housekeeping, maintenance team members and others.
Honorees include: Cheryl Kiltz, Eastgate Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation and Kristina Griffith, Prairie Village Nursing and Rehabilitation.
Especially during this unprecedented year, ASC believes that recognizing our outstanding employees is extremely important. ASC’s traditional award ceremony has been tailored this year to meet COVID-19 restrictions while recognizing these exceptional individuals as they have been celebrated on location by the team leaders from within their community. As part of each celebration, awardees have received a virtual message of appreciation from ASC’s CEO, Donna Kelsey, COO, David Stordy as well as ASC team member, basketball legend Quinn Buckner, via video.
“ASC’s Quest for Excellence Award winners promote and maintain the ASC culture of caring for others while demonstrating the highest level of integrity,” said Donna Kelsey. “These exceptional people embody ASC’s commitment by keeping its values of compassion, accountability, relationships and excellence as their highest priorities.”
