Feb 11, 2014
The Martinsville Campus of American National University presented a Distinguished Community Employer Award to the Blue Ridge Rehab Center on Thursday, January 30th. The Distinguished Community Employer Award was developed by the university to recognize community employers who support ANU graduates and students through employment, internship opportunities, or tuition assistance. John Scott, campus director, presented the award to Blue Ridge chief executive officer Christopher Oswald with other employees in attendance.
In his remarks, John cited the importance of the Blue Ridge facility in helping meet health care needs in Martinsville and Henry County. He pointed out that health demand is growing rapidly, and that Blue Ridge has increased its number of employees to approximately 350 to meet patient needs. The Rehabilitation Center has hired several ANU graduates and students during the past ten years in different capacities. In addition, Blue Ridge provides a member on the university advisory board to help review academic program offerings and suggest improvements from an employer viewpoint.
Mr. Oswald thanked the school for the award, saying that Blue Ridge hopes to maintain a working relationship with the university. He also thanked the staff at Blue Ridge for providing quality health care services to the patients and residents at the facility.
