The Texas Health Care Association (THCA) honored Sunny Stout with the prestigious Better Life Award at its annual conference in San Antonio earlier this month. The award, which honors nursing home personnel for improving services to citizens who are elderly or have disabilities, is not presented every year and former recipients include Texas legislators, advocates, state officials, and nursing home owners and key staff.
Sunny Stout is Vice President of Clinical Operations for Senior Care Centers and has more than 40 years experience training nurses and developing nursing programs for long-term care facilities.
In presenting the award, Tim Graves, THCA President and CEO commented:
“The THCA Better Life Award symbolizes the highest honor attainable in our long-term care profession. It is our “Medal of Honor” signifying a unique and lasting contribution to our profession…The long term care profession has been fortunate to have such a strong advocate of patients’ rights, facility guidance and compliance knowledge. Sunny is described as a “continuous beacon of light for quality.” Her work over the years makes her a deserving recipient of the Better Life Award for her positive impact on our profession.”
Senior Care Centers’ President Mark McKenzie added his praise for Stout’s achievement:
“This award exemplifies Sunny’s steadfast commitment not only to our residents, but to the overall quality of life of Texas’ aging and disabled community. Her innovative approach ensures that both our short- and long-term residents benefit from the continued evolution of care in our industry.”
