Halifax Regional Health System’s long term care affiliates, The Woodview and Seasons at The Woodview have each received 2009 D.A. “Woody” Brown Community Involvement awards.

These awards are presented annually by the Virginia Health Care Association (VHCA) to facilities that have demonstrated a high degree of professionalism and creativity in implementing programs that encourage and support strong community relations.

VHCA is a membership organization of nearly 300 licensed nursing and assisted living facilities statewide. The community involvement awards recognize exceptional programs that benefit residents as well as the community at large.

Each year activity professionals are invited to submit scrapbooks including narratives and visuals, which demonstrate successful facility-based programs. Entries are judged by a panel of community involvement and public relations experts who carefully evaluate each entry. Categories include Year Round Public Relations, National Nursing Home or National Assisted Living Week, Special Programs and Facility Newsletter.

This year the Woodview received the Year Round Public Relations award and the National Nursing Home Week award while Seasons at The Woodview received the Facility Newsletter award.

Both facilities were recently acknowledged and thanked during a meeting of the Halifax Regional Health System Board of Directors.

“We are thrilled to receive these awards,” states Winnie Boger, administrator. “They clearly reflect the hard work and dedication of our staff as they continually work to keep all of our residents connected to the community through outreach, and as they work to bring the community into the facility. The community/facility partnership demonstrated here is one in which we take pride.”
