More than 1,000 Signature staff members registered for the recent Spirituality LearnFEST, a virtual learning conference that encouraged participants to consider the impact of spirituality, if fully activated, in a long-term care environment.
And that number doesn’t even include the many who joined in groups, in offices, breakrooms and wherever there were TVs or computers at Signature centers across 10 states to view the live broadcast. The event featured sessions that tied spirituality to numerous aspects of long-term care and health care, from clinical care to legislative involvement and the impact of spirituality in the workplace.
These words, in many ways, defined 2014 for Signature HealthCARE. The Revolution brought our total number of locations to 125. We welcomed new centers to the family and took pivotal steps to position SHC as an integrated care network capable of meeting health care needs across the full spectrum of care. We expanded into new business lines while continuing to enhance and invest in existing service offerings.
This Veterans Day, Signature HealthCARE would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of our nation’s military veterans, and those still actively serving. We especially want to thank all of our residents and stakeholders who served our country.
Happy Veterans Day from the Signature family to yours.
Five of our residents participated in a regional social event for Signature HealthCARE facilities in North East Tennessee. Harriman Care and Rehab hosted the “Bell of the Ball” masquerade party at the Kingston Community Center. Our elders enjoyed a night out as ladies and gentlemen dressed to impress. The residents and attending staff delighted in the evening’s delicious food, entertainment, and activities. We look forward to next year’s event and all that it will bring.

This year’s Hall of Fame Café was an elegant event filled with flickering candlelight, gourmet food, delightful desserts, beautiful choral music brought to us by the students of Greeneville Adventist Academy, and a special visit by County Mayor David Crum. Everyone at Signature HealthCARE of Greeneville was proud to invest so much into creating a memorable event for our inductees. It was a privilege to recognize and honor such distinguished individuals for their decades of service and contributions to our surrounding communities.
For those unable to attend a SHC Hall of Fame ceremony, we’re bringing the celebration to you with four sites that were selected to have their ceremonies broadcast live via our website.

Signature HealthCARE of Greeneville recently participated in a ‘Veterans Stand Down’ event to help feed, clothe and provide medical services for homeless war veterans in East Tennessee.
The event was held at Munice Methodist Church Outreach Center for the Homeless in Johnson City, Tenn. SHC of Greeneville was joined by staff from several other Signature HealthCARE facilities in the area, along with Signature affiliate Silver Angels Home Care Specialists. Signature and Silver Angels also partnered with volunteers from the Department of Veterans Affairs, the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army, East Tennessee State University, along with local branches of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and the American Legion.
More than 170 veterans were directly served during the event, and 300 more box lunches were given out for homeless veterans who did not attend. In addition to meals and clothing, other services included: job and personal counseling, V.A. benefits awareness, haircuts and HIV testing. Sleeping bags, emergency supplies and sleep and survival kits for winter weather conditions also were given out.
“It was impressive how so many individuals, businesses and agencies pitched in to help care for our veterans who are in need,” said Silver Angels CEO Doug Hornsby. “It really showed the region’s ‘heart’ for the people.”
