Trezevant recently received the Excellence in Spiritual Care Award from HealthCare Chaplaincy Network (HCCN), a non-profit healthcare organization that seeks to advance the integration of spiritual care in healthcare through clinical practice, research and education in order to improve patient experiences and satisfaction and to help people faced with illness and grief find comfort and meaning. The Excellence in Spiritual Care Award signifies that Trezevant is addressing patients’ spiritual and religious needs through best practices in spiritual care. One program benefit is that it helps ensure compliance with the Joint Commission’s standards for spiritual care.

The goal of the award is to recognize and advance spiritual care delivery, enabling organizations to meet or exceed standards for excellence. HCCN has identified 17 proprietary standards of excellence in spiritual care including employing an interdisciplinary approach to spiritual care; engaging in quality improvement projects; and the strategic deployment of chaplaincy care resources. Once an organization has received the award, it remains in effect for two years, after which time the organization can reapply as desired.

“We are so very honored by this recognition,” says Kent Phillips, CEO of Trezevant. “We’re particularly proud of Reverend Robin Hatzenbuehler and Reverend Julie McKenna who led the application process for this prestigious award and who lead our spiritual support efforts for our valued residents, their families and our staff.”

Trezevant is the only Continuing Care Retirement Community to receive this award. For a full listing of award recipients, visit www.healthcarechaplaincy.org/esca-recipients.html.
