On Aug. 24, 2015, Life Care Centers of America honored Corrie Killingsworth, business office manager at Life Care Center of Sierra Vista, Arizona, with one of two President’s Awards for its Southwest Division.
The President’s Award, given during Life Care’s annual management meeting at its headquarters in Cleveland, Tennessee, recognizes distinguished service in long-term health care. The Southwest Division includes 23 skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities in Arizona, California and Nevada.
Killingsworth has served the Sierra Vista facility in various roles for the past 15 years, and she is a go-to person on the facility team for questions from admissions to billing, social services to central supply.
“Corrie is a dedicated professional who strives for perfection in all endeavors,” said Joe Renn, executive director at Life Care Center of Sierra Vista. “In all tasks, she has demonstrated sound, mature judgment and flexibility.”
Outside her daily duties, Killingsworth has been the captain of the facility’s Relay For Life team for the past eight years, raising more than $2,000 during that time for the American Cancer Society.
“Corrie has demonstrated professional skill and compassion in dispatching her responsibilities to the associates, residents and families she serves,” said Beecher Hunter, Life Care president. “She 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.
