ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, May 10, 2021 / -- The CareRite Centers Network will celebrate National Nursing Home Week during the week of May 10th, with this year’s honorable theme celebrating #TheVitalLink.

“This year’s theme was designed to highlight the selfless acts of courage, spirit, and commitment that employees across the CareRite Centers Network have and continue to display throughout the evolving COVID-19 pandemic,” a CareRite Centers Spokesperson announced.

Employees are referenced in the CareRite Centers’ mission as being the vital link, and the core foundation of the organization’s mission of, “genuine care and unprecedented levels of customer service.”

“As we reflect on the past year and look toward the future, we do so with great pride and appreciation for our team members, who have transcended the call of duty to ensure that our patients and their families continue to be in receipt of the highest levels of compassionate, quality care throughout the ongoing pandemic,” shared Akiva Rudner, CareRite Centers’ Chief Operating Officer.

CareRite Centers is revered in the skilled nursing and long-term care industries for celebrating National Nursing Home Week in extravagant fashion. The week is highlighted with cash prizes, coveted awards, and capped by a crowning of Professional-of-the-Year.

“CareRite truly makes their employees feel special, loved, and recognized,” continued Claudio.

This year’s Professional-of-the-Year title will award the winner their rent or mortgage paid for six months in full, with no monetary limit.

Last year’s title of Professional-of-the-Year was awarded to Ricky Torres, housekeeper and member of the environmental services team for a CareRite Centers facility in Long Island, New York. Previous winners prior to Torres included nurses, nurse aides, engineers, and others.
