Spotlight on Care

Whatever It Takes And Then Some Award

In September 2015, Crystal Akin, central supply director at Life Care Center of Rhea County in Dayton, Tennessee, received Life Care Centers of America's 2014 Eastern Division Whatever It Takes And Then Some Award for her generosity. When Akin learned a resident had tragically lost family members in an auto accident, she sprung into action. She knew the resident didn't have any clothing for a funeral, so she used her personal time and money to purchase something for the resident to wear. On the day of the funeral, Akin took special care to ensure the resident was prepared to attend the funeral to be with her family and friends.

Akin's story is just one of many tales of exceptional customer service and care found throughout our skilled nursing facilities and rehabilitation centers.
