On Aug. 14, 2017, Life Care Centers of America honored Jon Hennemyre, senior executive director at The Gardens Court in Palm Beach Gardens, with one of two President’s Awards for its Southeast Division.
The President’s Award, given during Life Care’s annual management meeting at its headquarters in Cleveland, Tennessee, recognizes distinguished service in a long-term health care management role. The Southeast Division includes 21 skilled nursing and rehab facilities in Florida.
Hennemyre has been instrumental in involving The Gardens Court more in the community, and he rolled out a new approach to customer service called “The Gardens Courtesy.” He also restructured shifts to make nursing schedules more functional and attract more nurses.
“Jon has demonstrated professional skill and compassion in dispatching his responsibilities to the associates, residents and families he serves,” said Beecher Hunter, Life Care president. “He has uniquely demonstrated a leadership style for others to emulate. This is a distinguished award to receive because it goes to the heart of our mission.”
Fifteen President’s Awards are presented annually to leaders of overall successful facilities or organizations within Life Care.
