Avamere 2019 Year in Review

January 3, 2020

2019 holds many great achievements for Avamere Living. Here are just a few of our highlights over the last year.

Expanded senior living services to 3 states

We brought Avamere’s services to three new states, Arizona, Nevada, and Utah, and an additional new market in 2019. This strategic move aligns with our Continuum of Care Priority, one of our initiatives as part of the Avamere Family of Companies.

New locations welcomed this year include:

Honored our female leaders

We honored several of our women in leadership in a video series. They revealed how they advanced their career, their advice for becoming a leader, the top leadership skills to attain, and more. Check out a few of these exclusive videos below!

Received outstanding survey results on patient and resident experience

An Avamere Family of Companies employee survey conducted in August 2019 revealed over 90 percent of surveyed staff believe Avamere cares about the patient, resident, and family experience. This survey was conducted as part of Avamere’s People Priority to measure employee satisfaction.

Sponsored the Walk to End Alzheimer’s

We participated in and sponsored the Walk to End Alzheimer’s again in 2019. Together, our teams across Avamere Living and Signature Healthcare at Home raised $23,824.

Three employees earn prestigious awards

In October, the Oregon Health Care Association recognized three Avamere Living employees for their exceptional work.

Melissa was also appointed to the Gerontological Nursing Standard Setting Panel, where she will sample gerontological nursing exams and provide feedback.

Congratulations to Alex, Livia, and Melissa!

Congratulations to the St. Francis of Bellingham team for earning Platinum Level Achievement for exceptional commitment to wound care. United Wound Healing recognized this team for ranking above average in several areas, including the time it takes to resolve wounds.


Avamere Rehabilitation of Eugene exemplifies “innovation, not emulation”

Avamere Rehabilitation of Eugene earned the Silver Keep It Super Simple Award for its staffing tool as part of the 2019 McKnight’s Excellence in Technology Awards.

This skilled nursing community continually exemplifies our Avamere core value of innovation, not emulation. The team earned another McKnight Foundation award for their sleep program in October 2018 and received the 2019 Advanced Quality Assurance & Performance Improvement Accreditation for the third consecutive year.

2019 was a strong year for Avamere Living and our entire Avamere Family of Companies. Every achievement holds a common goal: enhancing lives. As a team, we look forward to the years to come as we continually live by our mission to enhance the life of every person we serve.
