St Cecilia’s Nursing Home in Scarborough are celebrating after winning two awards at the Stars Awards in July.
The awards are backed by Jobmatch and recognise Scarborough apprentices and businesses who encourage staff development.
The nursing home won Best Medium Business Award at the ceremony while Clare Greenwood from the care home won the Health and Social Care award.
Sarah Earp and Danielle Young from the nursing home were runners-up in Hospitality and Catering and Health and Social Care awards. Registered Manager Donna Henderson collected Clare’s award on her behalf as she couldn’t make it to the award’s ceremony.
Mike Padgham, St Cecilia’s managing director, said: “We are absolutely delighted not only to win the Best Medium Business but for our staff to be recognised in this way. We place a high priority on the training and development of our staff and it is heartening to see them succeeding.
The Stars awards are an excellent idea, giving young people the opportunity to be recognised and applauded for their hard work – we hope the awards go from strength to strength.”
St Cecilia’s has 44 bedrooms available for nursing or residential care and specialise in providing 24-hour nursing care. They look after people with acute and life-limiting illnesses, which include strokes, cancer, heart failure, chest and breathing difficulties.
