Sunnyside Care Center received multiple awards at this year's Ecumen Leadership Conference held May 8 and 9 at the River's Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud, where over 350 Ecumen leaders gathered. This year, the center took home first place for customer satisfaction for the fourth consecutive year. The center was also given the five star achievement award, an award for great financial stewardship and the Ecumen Excellence 2018 award.

"It's no secret that Sunnyside is my favorite nursing home but what may not be as well known is how honored and proud I am to work beside the entire staff. They are dedicated to overall excellence and know any recognition we receive is due to an overall team effort," said Lori Olson, director of nursing at Ecumen.

One of the highest achievements of the evening was the Ecumen Excellence award, which is given to the site that meets four distinct criteria: 1) employee satisfaction, 2) customer satisfaction, 3) fiscal stewardship and, 3) compliance.

"This award speaks volumes to the care and compassion exhibited each day at Sunnyside Care Center. I am in awe of the relationships between the staff and those we serve. This is a special place," said Executive Director Ashley McNally.
