Kline Galland recognized by Washington State Department of Health for outstanding vaccination rates

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Kline Galland’s staff has met each new challenge together, united in our goal to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of our residents and staff. We view COVID-19 vaccinations for our staff as a critical protective measure to keep our community safe and are thrilled to be a recipient of a Gold Award for the Long-Term Care COVID-19 Immunization Champion Award.

The Long-Term Care COVID-19 Immunization Champion Award recognizes outstanding vaccination rates in long-term care facilities, nursing homes, and agencies in Washington. The gold award is the highest honor available, requiring a minimum of 90% of staff to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

To receive the award, Kline Galland tracked vaccination status of all employees and volunteers who work in the organization, totaling 97% fully vaccinated as of August 21, 2021.

The award was created by the Washington Department of Health in cooperation with the Department of Social and Health Services, the Adult Family Home Council, the Washington Care Association, LeadingAge Washington, the Community Residential Services Association, and the Washington Long Term Care Advisory Committee.

We would like to send a tremendous thank you to our staff who help keep Kline Galland a safe organization for all.
