ASC Honors 2023 Quest for Excellence Winners

Indy Winners Quest for Excellence

Every year, American Senior Communities looks forward to celebrating outstanding employees from their communities across Indiana during the annual Quest for Excellence Awards Celebration. In its 23rd year, the event took place on November 9, 2023 at the Marriott Downtown Indianapolis.

With over 10,000 employees across the state, a Quest for Excellence award of the year is the highest level of recognition an employee can receive, honoring employees who exhibit a compassionate and dedicated approach that surpasses their typical job requirements. Honorees include clinical staff, therapists and culinary staff, as well as business office, housekeeping, maintenance team members and others.­­

Janean Kinzie, Vice President of Social Wellness & Enrichment, delivered remarks on ASC’s Care Companion culture, and Josh Heaston, Director of Christian Mission for the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis, delivered the keynote speech on compassion. Additional remarks were delivered by CEO Steve Van Camp.

“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 ASC Chief Executive Officer Steve Van Camp. “These exceptional people embody ASC’s commitment by keeping its values of compassion, accountability, relationships and excellence as their highest priorities.”

ASC provides a variety of services, including Short-Term Rehabilitation, Memory Care, Skilled Nursing Care, Long-Term Care, Respite and Hospice Care, and living centers, including Garden Homes and Independent Living Apartments.
