Bethany Retirement Living has been awarded seven Customer Experience Awards from Pinnacle Quality Insight. Qualifying for the awards displays a continued dedication to providing Best in Class senior healthcare services.

The Skilled Nursing facility at Bethany on 42nd was recognized in two categories: Cleanliness, and Safety and Security.  The Towers Assisted Living at Bethany on University was recognized in five categories: Personal Care, Dining Services, Dignity and Respect, Communication, and Move-In Process.

Shawn Stuhaug, President/CEO of Bethany Retirement Living, describes receiving the awards as an honor, stating that, “Long term care facilities across North Dakota – and the nation, for that matter – participate in the on-going Pinnacle survey process to gauge the opinions of those who live at their facilities.  To be measured against such a yardstick and come out on top speaks very well of the people we have taking care of our residents and our facility.”

By qualifying for the Pinnacle Customer Experience Award, Bethany Retirement Living has satisfied the rigorous demand of scoring in the top 15 percent of the nation across a 12-month average.  Clients have the opportunity to achieve Pinnacle’s Best in Class distinction on a monthly basis in many categories designed to accurately reflect on each resident’s experience.  Pinnacle conducts more than 100,000 surveys a year and works with more than 1,100 clients in 47 states, Canada and Puerto Rico.
