The Bristal is proud to announce that Regional Director, Winsome Bent has been recognized as a top leader in the field of long-term care and senior care. Winsome was named to the Hall of Honor in the nationwide 2019 McKnight’s Women of Distinction awards.
The program is overseen by independent trade publications, McKnight’s Long-Term Care News and McKnight’s Senior Living, which received hundreds of nominations in this, the program’s inaugural year. An independent panel of judges comprising industry professionals and McKnight’s editors selected the winners, who were announced March 13 and March 14.
In her two-decade association with The Bristal, Winsome has not only risen through the ranks but her hard work, her kind demeanor, her support of her colleagues and her dedication to our residents and their families, have helped to mold and create an environment that has allowed The Bristal to become and remain the finest in the assisted living industry.
Collectively, McKnight’s Women of Distinction have helped their organizations achieve major patient care and financial performance milestones. Winners include direct care providers, as well as association and academic professionals. They have served as mentors or inspiration to their colleagues and in many cases pushed through personal hardship as well.
“The caliber of talent among nominees blew us all away,” said McKnight’s Vice President and Editorial Director John O’Connor. “It was humbling to see so many detailed and personalized nominations for hundreds of women in the field. We are excited to be the industry leader in acknowledging the contributions this group has made, and many are only getting started.”
McKnight’s will announce the 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award winner in late March.
All of the winners will be honored May 16 in Chicago. Profiles of each will be featured both online and in print editions of McKnight’s Long-Term Care News and McKnight’s Senior Living.
