Letter from the Administrator: Alexandra Maliwacki
We support a culture that promotes quality
care and goes above and beyond to provide
our guests with exceptional experiences. As
we focus on this initiative at Greenbriar, I
want to highlight some of the ways in which
we demonstrate our commitment.
Our care line phone number will continue to
have the ability to accept compliments for an
associate, but is primarily for grievances. There is also a new
website available to submit compliments as well as our
compliment box, still located at the receptionist desk. We have
notecards located at both entrances of the facility that can be
filed out by anyone and are given to the associate complimented
as well as posted in a visible area for all to see who has been
recognized for their noble work!
This program is focusing on recognizing each of us as individuals,
promoting a successful company culture, and contributing to the
happiness of our residents and the overall success of Greenbriar.

WOW Factor Winner: Annie Green C.N.A.
By: Kera Literal, DON
It is our pleasure to announce, that the WOW Factor Winner for
Greenbriar is Annie Green C.N.A.! Annie now has the opportunity to win
an all expenses paid cruise for herself and a guest. This is the second time
that Annie has won for our building, and last year she was the cruise
winner as well for our region. The cruise recipients will be announced at
an awards gala that will be held March 5th. Good luck, Annie!
The WOW Factor Winner is a way to acknowledge associates that have
received the most commendations throughout the year. Each winner has to have at least five
commendations/positive care line calls to be eligible. With her seventeen years of service to
Greenbriar, her compassionate nature, and commitment to excellence…it comes as no surprise that
Annie would be the one to beat.
“I hope I win the cruise again! I had so much fun last year!” Annie stated, after finding out she was
once again in the running. When asked why she believes she receives the performance praises from
her residents, Annie stated, “It’s because I keep my residents happy. I have always done that.” Annie
also states that she continues to strive to provide the highest quality of care, and it has little to do with
the chance to win an award. “It’s about the residents and their faces. When they tell you they missed
you after you’ve had a day off, and knowing that you make their day. That’s why we do this.”
Thank you, Annie for your dedication to our Culture of CARE!

Greystone’s communities were decked out in red on American Heart Association’s Wear Red

staff pledged to ‘Go Red’ and watch their sodium intake, increase physical activity, eat more
fruits, vegetables, fiber and whole grains, and see their doctor to check cholesterol, blood
pressure and blood sugar.
We’re honored by the support and commitment our associates made by taking the pledge. All
our locations had exceptional participation,
