Spring Hills Senior Communities Wins Employee Approved Award From NRC Health

May 21, 2019 | Blog

Alexandria, VA (May 21, 2019) — Alexandria’s Spring Hills Senior Communities has earned a 2019 Employee Approved Award from Lincoln, Nebraska–based healthcare-intelligence firm NRC Health. The award recognizes only 20 independent living, assisted living, or skilled nursing organizations across the country for engaging and inspiring their employees. Spring Hills Mt. Vernon Assisted Living is one of eight communities in the Spring Hills Senior Communities family.

“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/CEO of Spring Hills Senior Communities. “Receiving the NRC Health Employee Approved Award is an amazing honor. I could not be prouder to know that our employees love coming to work everyday and caring for our residents.”

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. This measure is known as the Net Promoter Score (NPS), and it strongly correlates with employee engagement, organizational loyalty, and job satisfaction.

“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. NRC Health commends these organizations for their dedication

to their staff.”

Spring Hills Mount Vernon, located at 3709 Shannons Green Way in Alexandria, provides premier assisted living and memory care with the finest amenities in the Northern Virginia/Washington, DC, area. For additional information visit
