“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 American Senior Communities Chief Executive Office Donna Kelsey. “These exceptional people embody ASC’s commitment by keeping its values of Compassion, Attentiveness, Relationships and Excellence as their highest priorities.”

In addition to recognizing key employees, ASC also honors nursing communities that have exhibited excellence in service and operations.

The awards program was ASC’s 17th annual honors event, which was held at the J.W. Marriott in Downtown Indianapolis. Gary Brackett, former Colts linebacker and entrepreneur, was a keynote guest speaker.
