Christian Horizons Honors Hickory Point Christian Village Senior Living Community for Excellence


     Christian Horizons, a senior services organization with living communities and offerings throughout the Midwest, is proud to honor Hickory Point Christian Village, a senior living community serving Forsyth, Ill., with the 2022 OCCYS Healthcare Excellence Award.

     The OCCYS Excellence Award honors Christian Horizons’ associates and teams who achieved excellence in meeting occupancy census goals according to budget.

     “We’re incredibly proud of the dedication and commitment from the associates of Hickory Point Christian Village,” said Jennifer Knecht, Christian Horizons chief sales and marketing officer. “From the care team, including CNAs and RNs, to housekeepers, transportation, dining teams and more, these associates are the heart of this community, and we honor their compassionate commitment to our faith-serving mission.”

     The Christian Horizons Excellence Awards honor senior living communities that go above and beyond in service, clinical excellence, occupancy goals, quality and mission integration. The annual awards are each year to associate teams across the Midwest.

     “These awards are our way of saying ‘thank you’ to associates and teams who go above and beyond,” said Knecht. “Leadership opportunities and career pathing are some of the incredible benefits of life at a Christian Horizons senior living community or service.”

     Hickory Point Christian Village is located just minutes from Decatur in Forsyth. The life plan campus offers a full continuum of senior living support—independent living garden villas, assisted living apartment homes, memory support, long-term skilled nursing care and short-term GracePoint rehabilitation.
