The longest tenured employees at 44 years have been with the company almost since its inception. The honorees represent nearly every department in the company including nursing, therapy, dietary, housekeeping, activities, maintenance, personal care, finance, administration and support staff.
Collectively, each year they administer more than 3,200,000 medications; prepare and serve more than 1,095,000 meals; provide 32 million minutes of therapy; process 48,000 claims; clean and maintain more than 500,000 square feet of buildings; complete 16,000 social work assessments; provide 10,000 activities; maintain 24,000 medical records; perform 730,000 grooming events; and admit, care for and discharge more than 4,000 patients to name a few.
The honorees work at all 5 of the group’s local facilities as well as the corporate center. The facilities include: Autumn View Health Care Facility in Hamburg, Garden Gate Health Care Facility in Cheektowaga, Harris Hill Nursing Facility in Williamsville, Northgate Health Care Facility in North Tonawanda and Seneca Health Care Center in West Seneca.
The event will feature speeches from facility executives including Chairman Frank McGuire, CEO Jim McGuire and President Steve Mercurio. A highlight to the event will be a video featuring photos of the honorees and their years of service. A professional photographer will also be on hand to take group photos, which will be framed and given to each attendee.
Together, these employees are part of a team that consistently helps The McGuire Group achieve five-star ratings from the federal government and has enabled the organization to be the only multi-facility provider in New York State to have ranked in the state’s top quintile for quality for 5 out of 5 years.
“These individuals are heroes, and we are honored to recognize their impressive commitment to our residents and our organization,” stated Steve Mercurio, president. While Mercurio will play a role in honoring the attendees for their years of service, he too is an honoree having been with the organization for 26 years. His speech will include references to the Overture of 1812 and how each individual instrument works together to create a masterpiece, much like the staff.
Services at The McGuire Group’s facilities include: subacute and outpatient rehabilitation, skilled nursing care, palliative and hospice care, memory care and respite/short-term care. For more information, visit www.mcguiregroup.com.
