Expansion. Adaptation. Innovation.

These words, in many ways, defined 2014 for Signature HealthCARE. The Revolution brought our total number of locations to 125. We welcomed new centers to the family and took pivotal steps to position SHC as an integrated care network capable of meeting health care needs across the full spectrum of care. We expanded into new business lines while continuing to enhance and invest in existing service offerings.

Compassion Fund

Signature HealthCARE of Buckhead’s CEO, Director of Nursing, Human Resources Director and a few recent recipients of the Compassion Fund recently set out a mission to garner additional participation in the Compassion Fund in our center. Over a period of three days, the Buckhead Compassion Fund Champions were able to educate stakeholders on the background of the Compassion Fund, eligibility requirements and how to donate, as well as how to apply for assistance if needed. The end result was incredible with participation rates tripling!

Fall Festival 2014 at SHC of Buckhead

Our Fall Festival was full of laughter, love, and light-heartedness. We gathered in the 3rd Floor Dining Area after dinner for costumes, candy, and desserts. One of our family members dressed up as the Cat in the Hat and themed her beautifully decorated cake and coordinated family costumes around the famous Dr. Seuss book. Our Quality of Life Director, Assistant QOL Director, and Concierge dressed up in polka dots and tutus. Family members and patients joined us for the festivities. We have fun in Buckhead! Come visit and see for yourself!

The Hall of Fame is an innovative Signature HealthCARE Quality of Life program designed to honor our “hometown heroes,” by recognizing their lives, accomplishments, and contributions to our community.

January Nixon, Assistant Director of Nursing, served as our Emcee for the evening.

From Alissa Ellison, Quality of Life Director:

We had a great Signature Senior Olympics on Tuesday, September 16, 2014! Both long-term and short-term rehabilitation patients participated. Our event was a company-wide event headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky and spanning several states with events held simultaneously in Signature facilities. At SHC of Buckhead, we had two main events, chair volleyball during the morning and wheelchair races in the afternoon. A host of spectators, including stakeholders and family members, were in attendance to cheer our athletes to victory. A special thanks goes to Chaplain Nancy for being our emcee and conducting the opening & closing ceremonies.

Signature HealthCARE of Buckhead hosted its first ever Family FUN Day on Saturday, August 9, 2014. Stakeholders, patients and their families were treated to a day of fun, food and games. New backpacks and school supplies were also given away to 50 children and free haircuts to 20 boys.

The Peachtree Road Race is an iconic Atlanta institution. The event, which attracts 60,000 runners and walkers from all over the US, is a great way to celebrate the Fourth of July. Spectators and volunteers line the six-mile route with American flags, cups of water, and cheers for the wheelchair racers, the runners, and the walkers. Last year we loaded up the van and drove to the parking lot on the corner of Peachtree Road and Peachtree Park Drive and we had a lovely time cheering on the racers. It went so well last year that it is becoming a tradition for us. This year, we loaded up the van around 10am. We sat on the sidewalk in the shade and watched the race as we waved our American flags! The runners were very happy to see our patients supporting the race.
