"The Alabama Nursing Home Association congratulates these member facilities for this outstanding accomplishment," Alabama Nursing Home Association Executive Director Louis E.

This year's award for superior customer and workforce satisfaction was presented to facilities that completed a My InnerView customer and workforce satisfaction survey in 2009, had a minimum 30 percent response rate and scored in the top ten percent of qualifying facilities on the questions "What is your recommendation of this facility to others?" and "What is your recommendation of this facility as a place to work?" in terms of the percentage of respondents rating the facility as "excellent." Out of over 5,000 nursing homes that participated in a survey in 2009, the customer award was presented to 342 nursing homes, the workforce award to 258 and 77 nursing homes received both awards.

"This year's award recipients deserve to be recognized and applauded for their dedication to workforce satisfaction," said Neil Gulsvig, President, My InnerView. "This annual award underscores the difference they make and serves to honor the valuable work that they do."
