Thursday, May 5, 2011 4:00 am
The Tennessee Health Care Association (THCA) has named Nolan Warren, a patient at Woodbury Health Center, to its annual Who’s Who in Tennessee Nursing Homes.
Honorees in this year’s Who’s Who recognition program, themed “American Classics,” include athletes, educators, military veterans and other individuals living in THCA member nursing homes statewide.
Warren graduated from Woodbury High School in 1935 and attended college at what is now Middle Tennessee State University. He taught at Crossroads School before joining the U.S. Army during World War II.
In 1952, he and his family moved to Michigan where they stayed until he retired in 1985. He and his wife, Mazel, moved back to Woodbury and have been active in the community and are members of Woodbury Church of Christ.
Warren will receive a Who’s Who certificate of recognition during National Nursing Home Week May 8-14, an event celebrating the fundamental role nursing homes play in the continuum of long-term care. His profile will also be featured on THCA’s website, http://www.thca.org.
“Each year, long-term care facilities across the state nominate exceptional men and women for Who’s Who in Tennessee Nursing Homes,” said THCA Executive Director Jesse Samples. “These patients have made a difference through their contributions to their families, churches, communities and occupations. They have shaped our history, and it is a privilege to honor them as ‘American Classics.’”
Since 1983, the Who’s Who in Tennessee Nursing Homes program has honored more than 1,700 outstanding individuals living in member facilities of THCA. Through this special program, THCA annually recognizes individuals who have made noteworthy contributions to their communities and helped shape history through their insight and actions.
Woodbury Health Center is a member of THCA, a nonprofit organization whose members include long-term care facilities located throughout the state. For more information about nursing homes, contact THCA at (615) 834-6520 or visit www.thca.org.
