JD Davis, executive director, holds up the award.

On Aug. 27, 2018, Life Care Centers of America presented Life Care Center of Tullahoma, Tennessee, with the Facility of the Year Award for its Eastern Division.

 

The award was presented during the company’s annual management meeting at its headquarters in Cleveland, Tennessee. It recognized the facility as the premier location in the division, which includes 39 skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities in Tennessee, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.

 

Criteria for this award include excellent customer service, a strong activities department, an active volunteer program and involvement in the community.

 

Life Care Center of Tullahoma, under the leadership of Executive Director JD Davis, was praised for achieving a five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, as well as a deficiency-free nursing survey this year.

 

Davis has worked with the local hospital CEO to share business ideas on how to better serve residents and make their lives more comfortable, and he hired a chef to enhance mealtime for residents.

 

“JD truly challenges himself and others to be their very best,” said Travis Hillis, regional vice president.

 

“We congratulate JD and his team of associates who, together, have developed such a strong facility,” said Beecher Hunter, Life Care president. “The residents and rehab patients at Life Care Center of Tullahoma are the real winners as they benefit from the works of love performed by the team every day.”
