The team at Heritage Healthcare North East are celebrating after being named the Health Care Team of the Year.
The home care franchise, located in Middlesbrough, picked up the accolade at the inaugural Northern Echo Health Care Awards 2021, which were held virtually last week.
Hosted by presenter Kate Walby, the ceremony set out to recognise the dedicated frontline workers who have worked hard to support service users, patients, staff and loved ones in the North East.
Commenting on the win, registered care manager Lisa Glass said: “I am so proud of the Heritage Healthcare North East team. They have always worked hand to support care to service users, not just over this past year during the pandemic. Due to exceptional infection control maintained by our staff, we have experienced minimal impact of COVID-19 with our service users and staff members.
“There have been very little disruptions to our service, and we have been able to continue to deliver care packages to our current clients and welcome new individuals.”
Heritage Healthcare North East is focused on providing person-centered care to allow more people living in Darlington, Stockton, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland to remain in the comfort of their own home for longer.
