We are excited to announce that Kline Galland’s CEO Jeffrey Cohen was named Senior Health Care Champion in Puget Sound Business Journal’s third annual Health Care Leadership Awards. The awards, which honor those on the front lines of the health care industry, highlight innovative and influential thinkers who have made a lasting impact on the region.

Cohen was recognized by Puget Sound Business Journal for his work keeping Kline Galland’s community informed, aligned, and prepared to address the challenges of COVID-19.

Throughout the pandemic, Cohen has ensured that Kline Galland is following the science, meeting all government recommendations, and providing a steady stream of transparent communications to all staff, residents and family members. In doing so, he helped keep Kline Galland’s community safe while also making sure that the organization served as a thought leader, encouraging people to listen to the advice of elected officials and medical experts.

Cohen joins 10 other honorees including a collection of doctors, researchers, professors and leaders that are driving the research and providing the care that will help the Puget Sound region recover from the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.

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.
