Filed under: Daily News,Health Care |

The Palisades at Broadmoor Park earned gold and silver National Homebuilders Association awards during the annual convention earlier this month.

The Palisades, which operates in partnership with the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, earned a gold award for its integration of technology into the senior living community, and a silver award for its fitness and wellness program. Award recipients were selected by a jury of 16 industry experts, who specialize in the 50-plus housing industry. There were more than 175 applicants for the award.

“These awards recognize the power of collaborative partnerships and innovation,” said Toby Gannett, executive director of the Palisades. “Since 2004, UCCS and Palisades have worked to make the best senior housing in the country. Together, we’ve earned more than two dozen awards. More importantly, we’ve improved the lives of our residents.”

Faculty and students from the UCCS College of Letters, Arts and Sciences and the Beth-El College of Nursing and Health Sciences have worked for more than eight years to develop an integrated model of fitness and wellness promotion at Palisades.
