Garland receives Quest for Excellence award

Angela Garland, a housekeeper with Seymour Crossing in Seymour, was among the 97 employees of American Senior Communities who have been honored with the ASC Quest for Excellence award for their outstanding service to patients and residents.

With more than 9,000 employees across the state, ASC’s Quest for Excellence is the most coveted employee recognition, celebrating a team member from each community whose work exemplifies a caring and concerned attitude that goes beyond the normal expectation of their job, according to a news release from the Indianapolis-based firm.

Honorees include clinical staff, therapists, culinary staff and business office, housekeeping, maintenance team members and others.

David Alexander, senior vice president of operations, delivered remarks on ASC’s Care Companion culture, and Ian Embry, a family member of an ASC resident, shared a testimonial.

Additional remarks were delivered by Chief Executive Officer Donna Kelsey.

“ASC’s Quest for Excellence Award winners promote and maintain the ASC culture of caring for others while demonstrating the highest level of integrity,” Kelsey said. “These exceptional people embody ASC’s commitment by keeping its values of compassion, accountability, relationships and excellence as their highest priorities.”
