Parkside, Bethesda earn PEAK award

Two Marion County nursing homes recently were awarded Promoting Excellent Alternatives in Kansas nursing homes (PEAK) awards by the Kansas Department on Aging.

Parkside Homes, who also won in 2008 and 2010, received an award, along with Bethesda Home, who also won in 2010.

Parkside Homes CEO Valerie McGhee said that though she is new to the company, she is very excited about their achievements.

“I think the groups of people who have been working on it for a long time are very excited and I am too,” McGhee said, “because if we can continue to maintain the status, it means we are doing what we need to be doing for the residents.”

Bethesda Home assistant administrator Sarah Hiebert said since their remodel in 2010, Bethesda Home has worked toward more person centered care.

“We feel like we do a really good job with that,” Hiebert said. “For Bethesda Homes to be recognized by the state is a huge accomplishment for us and we continue to strive to make this as much like their home as possible.”
