Simply Connect Announced As Gold Sponsor of McKnight’s Women of Distinction Event

Recognizing Hall of Honor recipients and Rising Stars.

Simply Connect announced that it is a Gold Sponsor of McKnight’s Long-Term Care News and McKnight’s Senior Living’s “Women of Distinction” event on May 16 in Chicago, Ill. The event celebrates both long-standing professionals who have had a significant impact on the senior living industry and those who are distinguishing themselves early in their careers.

"Simply Connect is proud and honored to join with McKnight's Long-Term Care News and McKnight's Senior Living to recognize and celebrate these accomplished and impressive women," said Simply Connect CEO Craig Patnode. "They have all, in their own right, had a major impact in this field and will continue to do so for years to come. We are excited to play a role in making sure that they get the recognition that they so rightly deserve."

The program will recognize 19 Hall of Honor recipients and 21 Rising Stars. “Rising Stars” nominees are those under the age of 40 or who have less than 15 years of experience in the industry. McKnight’s “Hall of Honor” nominees are women at an executive level, either in administration or direct care, at any senior living community, also including skilled and assisted living.

"It's a monumental year for women in eldercare services, and we're excited and humbled to be able to celebrate them," said McKnight’s Vice President and Editorial Director John O’Connor. “From those who have spent their careers serving seniors to rising stars who are creating new and innovative strategies, this is a class that represents the best of our industry. Simply Connect deserves applause for seeing the potential of this event and signing on as our Gold Sponsor."
