Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Iowa Governor Terry Branstad announced July 9 that three long-term care facilities have been selected to receive a 2014 Governor’s Award for Quality Care in Health Care Facilities. 

Residents and their family members, who observe first-hand the services and level of care provided to the residents, nominated the facilities, Governor Branstad said.

Selected to receive a 2014 Governor’s Quality Award of 16 nominations were Friendship Haven, a 155-bed nursing facility in Fort Dodge, Prairie View Home, a 73-bed nursing facility in Sanborn, and Woodland Terrace, a 126-bed nursing facility in Waverly. 

“What is most unique about the Governor’s Award for Quality Care is the fact that facilities are nominated by those they serve or the family members of their residents,” Governor Branstad said. 

“All 16 nominated facilities should feel a sense of pride in knowing that their residents and family members take comfort in the dedicated service and quality of care provided.”
