Pickett Care and Rehabilitation Center wins three prestigious Signature HealthCARE Awards

Each year Signature HealthCARE, Pickett Care and Rehabilitation Center’s parent company, holds its annual Learning Congress for its 70 skilled nursing facilities across its seven operating states.
This year’s congress was held in Atlanta, GA where Pickett County’s own facility walked away with the 2009 Small Building Facility of the Year, Market Leader Award, and Gold Survey Award.
“The honor took us by surprise. Signature has a number of high quality nursing facilities so the competition for this award is stiff,” said Jeff Amonett, Administrator. “It was a banner year for Pickett, we had superior survey results, strong census, labor, and clinical performances and our Rehabilitation department had been awarded Revolutionary Rehab Facility of the Year for 2009. When you add in the fact that we have the company’s strongest Quality of Life program, the award was well deserved by those who work here every day.”
In addition to the Facility of the Year Award, the Pickett Care and Rehabilitation also won the Market Leader Award and a Gold Survey Award. “We have plenty of people to thank for our successful year. We are fortunate to have high quality staff, supportive resident families, great community involvement, and strong physician support from Dr. Mason and the staff at BMC,” said Amonett.
Pickett Care and Rehabilitation Center is a 69 bed nursing facility located on 129 Hillcrest Drive in Byrdstown.
The facility offers Quality of Life initiatives, a Chaplain Program, and both in patient and out patient rehabilitation to serve the residents.
