Hallmark Care Homes facility in Warwickshire, Anya Court has been named ‘Large Business of the Year’ at the Rugby Business Excellence Awards.
The home which specialises in residential, nursing and dementia care, was praised for its welcoming atmosphere, team dedication and professionalism at the boroughs business awards.
The awards first established in 1998, acknowledge the hard work of local businesses and the contribution shown throughout the year.
Karen Handley, Anya Court’s customer relationship manager said: “Since we opened our doors last October, myself and the care team have worked really hard to establish Anya Court and build lasting links with the local community. This award is recognition of all our hard work.”
She added: “We would like to thank our care team, our residents and the community for supporting our mission to help our residents live active, independent and fulfilled lives.”
A panel of judges from Brethertons Solicitors reviewed the information sent in by the home last month, along with two other local businesses, before coming to their decision.
Entrants were judged on their business plan, evidence of goals set and achieved, customer satisfaction, commitment to staff development and other aspects including environmental policies, innovation and community investment.
Colin Witherall, head of commercial law at Bretherton’s said: We were very impressed with Anya Court’s business model, from its growth and development in recent years, to its staff training and the sheer number of superb testimonials it receives from delighted customers.
“All the entries we received were great examples of the fantastic breadth of experience and specialism the local business community enjoys, however Anya Court stood out as Rugby’s large business of the year.”
Anya Court, opened in October 2014 by television presenter John Craven, provides specialist care and its facilities include a hair salon, therapy room and emporium shop.
