Poet’s Walk Recognized

Poet’s Walk Fredericksburg is one of only 20 independent living, assisted living or skilled nursing organizations across the country to receive the 2019 Employee Approved Award from NRC Health, a health care intelligence firm in Lincoln, Neb.

Poet’s Walk Fredericksburg is one of eight memory care communities owned by Spring Hills Memory Care Community.

“A senior living community is a family. The staff are a huge part of that family and we strive to ensure that everyone at Spring Hills Senior Communities feels this,” said Alexander Markowits, president and CEO of Spring Hills Senior Communities, who called the award “an amazing honor.”

Winners were selected according to the results from NRC Health’s 2018 employee experience survey. To qualify, organizations must have a high percentage of respondents willing to recommend their locations as places to work. A complete list of award-winners can be found at nrchealth.com/customer_employee_awards.

“In senior living, employee culture makes all the difference,” said Stephanie Kolbo, NRC Health’s vice president of business development. “These organizations have developed working environments that both create and sustain employee engagement, so workers can dedicate themselves wholeheartedly to care.”
