Heroes among Health Care Workers in the fight against COVID

There’s good news to start the weekend. There are 18 nursing homes and 11 assisted living communities in Washington, DC that belong to a professional association. Each October this community of providers gathers and honors those who have excelled in their profession. Heroes amongst healthcare heroes are awarded the coveted “Of The Year” status. Recognition this year was especially meaningful since more nominations than ever were received and reviewed due to the ongoing global and national pandemic crisis. Out of the nominations from 29 senior living communities in DC, our Forest Hills team were awarded 3 honors:

  • Janice Johnson, Director of Nursing and Infection Preventionist, was awarded RN of the Year in DC
  • Kabba Sesay, Dir of EVS and Maintenance, was awarded Department Head of the Year in DC
  • Ron Thompson, our Cook of 16+ years, was awarded Ancillary Staff Member of the Year

We are grateful to have Ms. Johnson, Mr. Sesay, Mr. Thompson and many more committed, engaged team members.
