On June 30, 2017, Jamin Johnson, business development director for Life Care Center of Michigan City, Indiana, was a special guest on a local radio station.
WIMS radio host Ric Federighi interviewed Johnson about the facility and its recent achievements. Johnson shared about Life Care Center of Michigan City’s five-star rating in patient outcomes, as well as the certificate of achievement it earned from the atom Quality Innovation Network. The atom Alliance is a collaborative throughout five states that emphasizes quality improvement in nursing homes. Life Care Center of Michigan City earned the certificate of achievement for scoring a composite score of 6 or less through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid.
Life Care Center of Michigan City has also been sharing Medical Minutes and insurance education programs on WIMS. The Medical Minutes are radio spots in which local physicians share health tips, and doctors also go on the radio to talk about open enrollment and compare insurances to help consumers be better informed about their health care choices.
WIMS and Life Care remain partners in community health.
“We get on the air monthly,” said Johnson. “One of our patient’s daughters comments frequently about our radio interviews.”
