Awards Luncheon at Brick, N.J., SNF Celebrates 25 – and More! – Years of Service 

BRICK, N.J. (Sept. 5, 2023) — Reflecting its emphasis on workplace quality and team recognition, Willow Springs Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center in Brick recently hosted an awards luncheon for 10 team members with more than 25 (and some with over 35!) years of service. Brick Township Council President Heather DeJong joined Willow Springs leadership in honoring the skilled nursing facility’s long-time employees. 

“It’s our pleasure to recognize these members of the Willow Springs family for their decades of service,” said Eli Rosenblum, administrator. “Today and every day, we appreciate our team’s loyalty and dedication, and we thank them for their work in caring for our community.” 

Willow Springs’ Andrea Garvin, director of human resources, coordinated the festivities for the center’s long-time team members; award plaques were presented to each of them. “Willow Springs is known as a great place to work: quality employees, quality employer,” Garvin said. “This type of loyalty and retention is well worth recognizing and particularly meaningful within an industry that is prone to high staff turnover.”  

Located at 1049 Burnt Tavern Road, Willow Springs provides post-hospital care, short-term rehab and long-term residential care. It was recently named one of the nation’s top skilled nursing facilities in Newsweek’s “America’s Best Nursing Homes 2023” and maintains a five-star rating for quality measures from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
