Issaquah Nursing and Rehabilitation Center honored
The Issaquah Nursing and Rehabilitation Center was recently honored with the 2012 National Nursing Home Week award at the annual meeting of the Washington Health Care Association in Spokane.
The awards are designed to acknowledge and recognize individuals who truly add to the quality of life and care for the seniors they serve in Washington nursing homes and assisted living communities.
National Nursing Home Week celebrates the residents, families, staff and volunteers for their dedication throughout the year. This past year, the center celebrated with a “cruise ship” theme where residents and staff “visited” various tropical islands throughout the week, stopping for margaritas one night, and island dancing and music the next.
Lisa Stubenrauch honored for outstanding service to seniors
Lisa Stubenrauch, a registered nurse and administrator at Issaquah Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, was honored with the 2012 Administrator of the Year Award at the Annual Meeting of the Washington Health Care Association.
The awards honor those individuals who add to the quality of life and care for the seniors they serve in nursing homes and assisted living communities.
Stubenrauch has worked at Issaquah Nursing and Rehab for three and a half years, bringing the formerly one-star Medicare-rated facility to five stars. The residents also voted her employee of the year.
Stubenrauch is also the chairwoman of the local Kiwanis Social Committee and recently worked to re-energize the local chapter of the National Association of Directors of Nursing Administration.
