Wave 3 TV, in Louisville, recently did this story about the Steier family and what inspired the decision to bring spirituality into the workplace at Signature HealthCARE.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9jMynazTWA]
This week, the Signature Revolution continues to break elder care world records.
We recently helped establish a new Guinness World Record for ‘Longest High-Five Chain’ in the world when SHC of Terre Haute residents and stakeholders joined the community for the United Way’s ‘High Five Campaign for Every Child.’
And last week, the most senior athletes in the world competed in regional Senior Olympics events ranging from Tampa to Tennessee to Louisville, where hundreds and hundreds of elder athletes competed to win team championships and prestigious medals with cheering crowds.
But this week is even bigger.
Rarely in our lifetimes do we get the chance to bring something back to life.
We may ‘add to’ life as we contribute to our divine purpose. Maybe a few times we ‘co-create life,’ as parents. But to bring it back or restore it like Elijah, the great prophet, did in the Old Testament when he resurrected the young boy of the widow, is a miracle to truly celebrate.
At this year’s NIC (National Investment Center for the Seniors Housing & Care Industry) Conference I was provided an opportunity to speak on a panel with Clint Malin, of LTC Properties REIT, on using market intelligence for predictive modeling purposes.
Due to our history with the NIC, the president and CEO Bob Kramer invited me to eat with the legendary Senator Bill Frist, who is a world-class surgeon, former senate majority leader, Modern Healthcare’s second-most influential leader, a Harvard alum, son of HCA founder Dr. Thomas Frist, great father and so on. And, he is considered to be one the preeminent healthcare thought leaders in the world. At lunch, Senator Frist actually knew quite a bit about the Signature Revolution because of our deep Tennessee roots and the recent Bordeaux partnership with the city of Nashville, where Senator Frist has deep roots for decades.
We drew a bigger crowd when Lee Cockerell came to give us a soft talk about how Disney customer service can transform your healthcare organization, which really ended up being more about marriage and wellness advice, than when one of the preeminent and most respected healthcare policy and medical pioneers in the country, Dr. Thomas Lee, came to town late last week.
Dr. Lee was a great selection by the Health Enterprises Network because he helped created ‘Romneycare,’ making Massachusetts the first state in the U.S. with a universal health insurance program. Dr. Lee, along with the famed Michael Porter, also just co-authored the largest-ever Harvard Business Review article on transforming healthcare to a more patient-centered, value-driven model – a ‘must read’ for all HC organizational leaders. He designed change, lived through it, and now wants to help you change your mental modes.
Last week, I had a magical day that let me touch the Signature Revolution up close and personal…
Several years ago, a dilapidated old nursing facility with a poor reputation located in Portland, Tennessee, operated by the Seventh Day Adventist Church that was attached to a small factory on the property, was offered to the Signature organization as another operational turnaround.
