“In an age of changing health care, Mary Ann Morse has remained committed to prioritizing quality care above all else,” said Mark Parkinson, president and CEO of AHCA/NCAL. “This facility is an example of the great things that can be accomplished when we commit to person-centered care.”

“This award belongs to everyone who works here,” Lisa Kubiak, the center's executive director, said. “We are all committed to meeting the needs of each resident as an individual.
