---- — Dr. Eric Heathers receives company award

Great Lakes Caring Hospice and Home Health presented to Dr. Eric Heathers, Kokomo, the 2013 Award for Excellence for providing quality care to residents and patients.

He received this award from over 1,200 candidates — from skilled and assisted living facilities, doctors offices, and hospitals — in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.

Only 118 candidates were selected for this annual award in recognition of their collaborative efforts to help determine in a timely manner home health- and hospice-appropriate patients in order to provide meaningful and helpful quality care.

Wellbrooke of Kokomo, the new Center for Health and Wellness located on South Dixon Road, will celebrate its grand opening with a public open house from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday at the center, 2200 S. Dixon Road.

“The 66,582-square-foot center will offer 30 service-rich assisted living apartments and 70 private and companion suites for those in need of top-of-the-line rehabilitative care, assisted living or long-term care.

“The handsomely-appointed design and hotel-like environment will be comfortable and engaging with concierge-style delivery of services and intergenerational activities for the whole family including four different dining venues, a movie theater, bocce court, fire pit, putting green, on-site hair salon and more.”
