Butler, PA- Pittsburgh Business Times is proud to present Quality Life Services of Butler, Pa with the 2016 Family Business Award. This award honors multi-generational, family-owned businesses in the region for overall excellence, innovation, ethics and philanthropy. Quality Life Services is a post-acute healthcare company offering skilled nursing, rehabilitation, personal care, memory care and independent living services for more than 1,300 residents at ten campuses (in seven counties) throughout western Pennsylvania. Quality Life Services, currently owned and operated by the third generation of the Tack Family, also owns an institutional pharmacy that provides medication services to the residents of our long-term care facilities.
The company first began in 1956 when Ken and Nancy Tack bought an old farm in Worthington, Pa with the dream that it would become something more- a place for their family to serve others, to better lives, to care for those who needed them. In 1973 this dream became a reality by opening Sugar Creek Rest. Over the last 43 years, the Tack family has expanded the business to include Chicora Medical Center, Countryside, Fair Winds Manor, Golden Hill Nursing and Rehab, Henry Clay Villa, South Fayette Nursing Center, Trinity Living Center, West Haven Manor, Westmont Woods, and Quality Pharmacy.
Now proudly operated by Christian-led third generation owners, Quality Life Services donated $25,000 to the Salvation Army in December 2015 in supporting their mission to serve others. Quality Life Services is also committed to providing a workplace that is like a family by enabling their employees to serve others through sponsoring children in Guatemala, encouraging employees to volunteer time as Kettle Bell Ringers for the Salvation Army during the holiday season, and through scholarship opportunities for employees’ families. The owners of Quality Life Services are very thankful for the opportunity to receive this award and state “’Family is who we are’ is not just our company tagline - it's our way of life.”
