McMinnville, Ore. – February 26, 2022 – Brenda Connelly, RN, BSN, chief operating officer of The Springs Living, has been inducted into the Hall of Honor in the McKnight’s Women of Distinction awards, a joint program of McKnight’s Long-Term Care News, McKnight’s Senior Living, and McKnight’s Home Care.
The program, in its fourth year, recognizes women who have made significant contributions to the senior living, skilled nursing or home care professions or who have demonstrated exceptional commitment to the fields. Hall of Honor inductees are at the level of vice president or equivalent.
“These inductees really stand out for the impact they have made on long-term care in general and on colleagues, residents, and clients in particular,” McKnight’s Editorial Director John O’Connor said.
Nominations were judged by an external panel of industry experts. All winners will be honored at an awards celebration on May 12. An educational forum will follow on May 13.
