Market Square Employees Honored at Lunch

NORWAY, ME - Employees of Market Square Health Care Center were honored recently at a lunch thanking them for their role in the excellent visit by a state survey team.   Lunch was served in the employee break room on a sunny Thursday for employees to enjoy as they alternated lunch breaks. 

As a medical care facility licensed by the state of Maine Market Square is subject to review once a year to make sure all standards of care are being met.   The visits are scheduled during a 6 month window, so administration and staff does not know when the survey team might arrive.   The survey focuses on 3 areas at Market Square, the nursing home which is licensed according to state and federal regulations; residential care which is licensed according to according to state regulations; the entire facility is then also surveyed by fire marshal.  Standards for Maine are extremely rigorous, and the entire staff works all year long to make sure their work meets those state standards. 

Market Square Administrator, Philip Dubois states, "The strong results from our annual survey are a tribute to the hard work and dedicated care provided by our staff every day.  Surveyors discerned this commitment quickly and commented on it.  This lunch shows our staff how much their efforts are noticed and appreciated." 

Individuals and groups of employees of Market Square have been honored at the state level for excellence in long term care.  In addition, Market Square as a facility was named the "Facility of the Year" for 2005 by Advance for Providers of Post-Acute Care, a national magazine for long-term care.

Market Square Health Care Center is an affiliate of Western Maine Health, which is part of the Maine Health® family.  Visit Western Maine Health on the Internet at www.wmhcc.org.
