McKnight's Long-Term Care News was named the nation's best healthcare publication last month by the American Society of Healthcare Publication Editors. McKnight's earned Publication of the Year honors and garnered seven awards overall in the 2009 ASHPE competition, its most ever.

The Publication of the Year Award is given for overall excellence in editorial content, as well as use of staff, graphics and service to the readers.

McKnight's “does it all ... excellent writing, thorough and well-rounded coverage plus total analysis,” wrote one ASHPE judge. “Leaves the reader feeling like his time was well-spent gaining knowledge and insight in a well-designed package.”

McKnight's also won a repeat Gold Award for Best Online News Section (at www.mcknights.com). In addition, McKnight's captured Silver Awards for Best E-Newsletter (McKnight's Daily Update) and Best Single Issue (October 2008), as well as three Bronze Awards.
