This is an extraordinary award and the envy of many around the country. And it’s more confirmation that we are setting the standard for great projects in senior housing.”
Senior living communities nationwide submitted their communities for consideration in the third annual SHN Awards, a contest that recognizes excellence by celebrating projects that improve the lives of seniors through innovative design. "We continue to be impressed with how designers, architects and operators are raising the bar each year for senior living communities," said SHN Publisher and Founder George Yedinak. "Owners and operators are setting themselves apart through design in an increasingly competitive market environment by leveraging innovative spatial designs and focusing their efforts on community integration in local areas."
From the more than 60 organizations that entered their communities in this year's competition, only seven projects were chosen as 2015 SHN Awards Winners for their unique approaches to senior living design.
