Northern Montana Care Center Awards
Every year at Northern Montana Care Center one RN or LPN, and one CNA are designated as winners of two very special awards.
The Max E. Kuhr Memorial Award for the Outstanding Caregiver at Northern Montana Care Center was established in 2005 by Ann D. Kuhr as a way of recognizing the outstanding care her husband Max received while a resident at the Care Center. Eligible candidates must have demonstrated an outstanding attitude of caring and compassion toward residents of Northern Montana Care Center. The recipient is selected by a committee appointed by the Administrator of the Care Center.
To honor the memory of her mother, Tillie S. Patterson and the Northern Montana Health Care Foundation established the Wallie Schmockel Memorial Caring Award in January of 1998. Eligible candidates must have demonstrated an outstanding attitude of caring, compassion, and dedication toward residents of Northern Montana Care Center. The recipient shall be selected by the administrator of the Northern Montana Care Center in December of each year from those employees nominated by charge nurses, nursing supervisors and the administrator.
