Three Community Awardees Named by Presbyterian SeniorCare Network

May 22, 2018

Presbyterian SeniorCare Network has announced the names of three honorees whose contributions of time, service and expertise will be recognized at a special May 31st Celebrate the Momenti event at Bella Sera. The distinguished community awardees are as follows:

  • Washington Health System will receive The Harry R. Edelman III Quality of Life Award in recognition of extraordinary contributions in enhancing the quality of life of residents who are served by Presbyterian SeniorCare Network. As a collaborator with Presbyterian SeniorCare Network for more than 50 years, Washington Health System has been a partner on initiatives to enhance the quality of medical services and chronic disease management at the Washington campus of Presbyterian SeniorCare Network. This has included a geriatric fellowship program for the provision of higher acuity patient services as well as other continuous improvement efforts that reinforce our commitment to being an efficient and values-based care provider. 

  • Your Holiday Home Committee will receive The Charles W. Pruitt, Jr. Difference Award for outstanding contributions of time, service and support. The Committee will be recognized for their decade of passion for hosting a holiday fundraising event that supports the residents of Presbyterian SeniorCare Network at the Washington campus. The annual event, which has grown each year, attracted 400 guests in 2017 to the Hilton Garden Inn Southpointe for a fun-filled morning of holiday-themed presentations and fantastic prizes at the silent auction and raffles.

  • Carla Falkenstein will receive The Samuel K. McCune Award for Distinguished Service for exceptional service in support of aging-related concerns and for making a significant, positive impact on the lives of older Americans. Falkenstein will be honored for her work championing quality, service-enriched senior housing through her strong leadership at the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency as the statewide director of service coordination and western Pennsylvania director. Her support of service-enriched housing has been critical to the success of these programs in the state and instrumental in helping Presbyterian SeniorCare Network and others in securing funding to develop affordable housing communities.

“We extend our most heartfelt thanks to Washington Health System, the Your Holiday Home Committee and Carla Falkenstein for their dedicated support of Presbyterian SeniorCare Network over the years,” said President and CEO Paul M. Winkler. Winkler added, “Through their dedication and collaboration with us over many years, these distinguished community honorees have made a tremendous difference in the lives of older adults. We welcome everyone to come out and join us on this very special night, to pay tribute to our community awardees.”

Celebrate the Momenti will be held at 6 PM on May 31, 2018 at Bella Sera restaurant in Canonsburg, PA and is sponsored by Citizens Bank and Washington Financial Bank. The celebration will feature Italian food and drink, awards celebration, live entertainment and the ability for guests to take photos in front of virtual Italian landmarks.
