2016 Awards Recognize Innovation and Superior Service in Long Term Care

PHOENIX – Mimosa Springs/Plaza Healthcare is proud to announce that Tammy Evory has been named a 2016 Leadership Professional of the Year by the Arizona Health Care Association (AHCA), the state’s largest association and advocacy organization for skilled nursing and assisted living communities. The honor was presented in June at AHCA’s annual statewide conference in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The award is one of seven statewide honors recognizing individuals and organizations that go above and beyond to provide exceptional care to Arizona’s elderly and disabled residents.

Tammy Evory serves as the Assisted Living Manager at Mimosa Springs. Under her leadership, the staff created new amenities for residents including a spa program and sensory stimulation room and tripled the activity program to include live entertainment weekly, cooking classes, games, and family gatherings. Staff members report that rather than giving orders, Tammy leads in a collaborative way, inspiring them to share her vision and believe in themselves.

“These outstanding professionals have chosen to work in a career that is complex, challenging and also deeply rewarding,” said AHCA Executive Director Kathleen Collins Pagels. “Each of the caregivers and organizations selected for these awards – along with all those who were nominated – represent the best-of-the best of our profession.”

AHCA is Arizona’s largest professional long term care association and advocacy organization representing skilled nursing facilities and assisted living communities. We are dedicated to assisting our members in providing the highest quality long term care services to our residents.
