Via Christi Village in Pittsburg honored with the PEAK Award


Via Christi Village in Pittsburg was honored with the PEAK Award on Thursday.

Secretary Shawn Sullivan of the Kansas Department for Aging was at the ceremony to present the award.

PEAK - which stand for Promoting Excellent Alternatives in Kansas - honors nursing homes that go above and beyond for their residents and Secretary Sullivan says Via Christi does just that.

"Via Christi here in Pittsburg is really working towards becoming more person-centered and that's what we're really trying to do with all of our state's nursing homes," says Secretary Sullivan.  "We want what is happening here to be the standard of care across the state and not the exception."

A total of 12 peak awards were given out to Kansas nursing homes this year.
