Brittany Foster, a unit manager at Markle Health & Rehabilitation, in Markle, was among the 86 employees of American Senior Communities (ASC) who were honored for their outstanding service to patients and residents.

The employees were recognized during ASC’s 19th annual Quest for Excellence Awards Banquet, held at the Downtown Marriott Hotel in Indianapolis.

With close to 11,000 employees across the state, the Quest for Excellence Banquet celebrates a team member from each community for their dedication to their role and exemplification of ASC’s core values. Honorees included clinical staff, therapists and culinary staff, as well as business office, housekeeping and maintenance team members.

The event’s keynote speaker was basketball luminary and Indiana resident Quinn Buckner. Buckner is one of only three men in history to win a championship on every level of basketball. Buckner recently joined the ASC team as a spokesperson, with an active role in leadership training.

“ASC’s Quest for Excellence Award winners promote and maintain the ASC culture of caring for others while demonstrating the highest level of integrity,” said ASC Chief Executive Officer Donna Kelsey. “These exceptional people embody ASC’s commitment by keeping its values of compassion, accountability, relationships and excellence as their highest priorities.”

ASC also recognized Swiss Villa as its Healthcare Community of the Year and Allisonville Meadows Assisted Living as the Senior Living Community of the Year for 2019.
