Over the past year, Beinhauer Family Funeral Homes and Cremation Services have offered a program which recognizes the tireless dedication and hard work by hospice caregivers, whether they are employees or volunteers, serving hospice patients in a variety of ways. This program is called the Beinhauer Caregiver Excellence Award.
Each month, one of several caregivers who are nominated by their peers is selected by the Beinhauer Executive Team to receive this special award, consisting of a framed certificate and a Visa gift card. After the first year of this ongoing program had passed by, all the monthly winners were invited for a festive Annual Awards Banquet, and for the drawing of the Grand Prize winner. The Beinhauer Executive Team and several funeral directors joined the winners and their guests for a time of celebration and encouragement at the Capstone Grill in McMurray in early November.
The Grand Prize, consisting of an overnight at the OMNI Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh, with two meals and other special perks included, was awarded via a random drawing to Shane Rawlings Mahoney, the September 2016 winner from Paramount Hospice. It was presented to Shane by Rick and Scott Beinhauer, along with Katie Brandt, Community Outreach Director for Beinhauer Family Funeral Homes and Cremation Services.
