Autumn Care of Saluda announced this week that Rosemary Lopez, CAN, and Nicole Galladay, transportation aide, have been selected as North Carolina Health Care Facilities Association Fabulous 50 winners.
The Fabulous 50 awards program, launched in 2001, is an important part of the long term care community’s effort to recognize the extraordinary contributions of all front-line staff to the quality of care and quality of life of individuals residing in skilled nursing facilities. The Fabulous 50 are nominated by their co-workers for this award. Each person selected will be honored at a dinner celebration, complete with a local celebrity host. Recognition includes a certificate from Governor Beverly Purdue.
“We are proud to have these two outstanding employees receive this special recognition,” said Glenn Pierce, administrator at Autumn Care. “They exemplify our staff’s commitment to ‘service above self.”
Lopez and Galladay will be honored at a banquet on Oct. 18 in Asheville, N.C.
Lopez has been with Autumn Care for 15 years. She is a CNA II and recently received her medication aide certification. Galladay has been with the facility for more than 19 years. She serves as transportation coordinator.
