December 6, 2021 – Monterey, CA – Windsor Monterey Care Center, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center located in Monterey, California, was recognized by the Health Services Advisory Group (HSAG), the Medicare Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO) for Arizona and California for achieving higher-than-average COVID vaccination rates among their staff.
Earlier this year, HSAG launched the Full Speed Ahead! program to assist skilled nursing facilities with improving COVID-19 vaccination rates among residents and staff. Care centers can access tools and resources on the HSAG COVID-19 vaccine webpage, view HSAG’s on-demand virtual education sessions, and receive direct assistance from HSAG Quality Improvement Specialists. Skilled nursing facilities that achieve high vaccination rates are recognized through the HSAG recognition program.
Windsor Monterey exceeded a 75% staff COVID-19 vaccination rate for four consecutive weeks during the third quarter of 2021.
“HSAG recognizes the tremendous effort taken to increase COVID-19 vaccinations,” says Simi Williams, Quality Improvement Specialist, Health Services Advisory Group. “Thank you for being a leader in this important effort to protect staff members, residents, and communities.”
“Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision,” says Natasha Prunty, Administrator at Windsor Monterey Care Center. “It is the ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. I am so proud of the commitment and dedication this team has shown. We are all proud to be vaccinated.”
