Cleveland, Tenn. (Vocus) September 28, 2009 -- Life Care Centers of America bestowed its awards for excellence in an array of presentations Monday evening, Sept. 21., at its headquarters in Cleveland, Tenn.

The Chairman's Award for outstanding commitment to excellence went to Mark Krueger, vice president of Life Care's Metro and Palm Regions. The Carl W. Campbell Wind Beneath My Wings Award for the company-wide volunteer of the year went to Inez Glass, founder of Cottesmore of Life Care in Gig Harbor, Wash., who still plays an active part in facility life.

"The winners of these awards - both for performance and volunteerism - reflect the professional skill and the heart for service demonstrated daily by thousands of people across our company," said Beecher Hunter, Life Care president. "They are compelled by a remarkable faith and love."

Krueger was praised for his ability to communicate clearly and frequently with the executive directors and other associates at the regional and facility level, training associates on more effective ways to care for the residents and sending weekly e-mails to associates to inspire and motivate them in their daily tasks.

Glass founded Cottesmore of Life Care in 1969, as the result of a dream of providing nursing care to the Gig Harbor community. After she sold the building to Life Care in 1995, she has continued to serve as a volunteer, visiting with residents and helping with activities. She coordinates the annual Scandia Day, held on the last Friday of National Nursing Home Week, including food and speakers. Her award was presented by Carl Campbell, the man for whom it is named and a co-founder of Life Care Centers of America.

Other volunteer winners were Derek VanTassel, Company-Wide Youth Volunteer of the Year, from Columbine Manor Care Center in Salida, Colo., and Notre Dame High School for their work at Life Care Center of East Ridge, Tenn.
