Life Care Center of New Market has been awarded the 2016 Business Development Award of Excellence for Life Care Centers of America’s Bluegrass Region.

The award recognizes facilities for innovative programs in serving their communities. The center was nominated for improving its discharge planning process in 2016.

“At Life Care Center of New Market, we now plan for discharge at admission for short-term rehabilitation,” said Natalie Fitzwater, business development director at the facility.

“In focusing on each patient’s therapy goals and planning to return home, we are also being good stewards of people’s financial resources and encouraging each person to exercise their choice to live independently.”

Life Care Center of New Market is located at 315 E. Lee Highway.
