Summer bbq honors Hillcrest staff for perfect survey


Hillcrest Manor Administrator Mary Arthur (C) thanks her staff for their dedicated attention to detail during last night's barbecue held in their honor. The staff turned in a perfect survey for the second time in three years, said Arthur. "Your attention to details is just fabulous," Arthur said.

To celebrate a perfect survey from the state nursing home inspectors, the staff of Sunnyside's Hillcrest Manor nursing home and rehabilitation center enjoyed a Hawaiian luau Wednesday night.

The dinner was hosted by the Otis Avenue facility's department heads as a giant "thank you" for doing their jobs well, said Mary Arthur, Hillcrest Manor administrator.

The off-duty employees, along with their spouses met for the barbecue on the facility's patio, where they joined periodically by the staff working the evening shift.

"We have a fabulous staff," Arthur told the more than 80 people attending the evening celebration.

"You have all worked so hard to learn how to your jobs perfectly day-in and day-out. Your diligence has paid off with our perfect survey.

"You made it happen," she said.
