Hometown Girl Named Employee of the Year at Orchard Villa

Oregon resident, Allison Thompson, remembers when Orchard Villa’s skilled nursing community was being built. It was 1995 as a Clay High School senior, she was driving by on her way to exercise at the YMCA.

“I saw the construction site and the big sign and wondered about working there one day,” says Allison, who was planning to attend nursing school after graduation.

One year later, Allison joined Orchard Villa as a nursing assistant. She’s still there today, now as a registered nurse, daytime nursing manager and the company’s 2016 Employee of the Year. Allison was honored with the award in April at the Employee of the Year Dinner for Legacy Health Services, the company that operates Orchard Villa.

Orchard Villa provides short-term rehabilitation, long-term care, skilled nursing, and soon, assisted living along with specialized programs such as orthopedic rehabilitation, respiratory care, cardiac programming, complex wound treatment, respite and hospice care.

Orchard Villa is one of 11 skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities operated by Legacy Health Services throughout Northern Ohio. The family-owned company is based in Parma, Ohio, and has a staff of more than 2,500 nurses; nursing assistants; certified nurse practitioners; andphysical, occupational and speech therapists.
