Silver Heart Award Spotlight: Josh, Ohio Living Westminster-Thurber

Posted on January 17, 2023 in In The News

Congratulations to Silver Heart Award recipient Josh, who embodies endurance through his leadership style and approach as the director of environmental services at Ohio Living Westminster-Thurber.


Josh steps up to handle urgent and unexpected needs with professionalism and care. He advanced to his current position over the course of 16 years, working various jobs within the environmental services department.


His leader shared, “In 2020, Josh stepped up in ways that were never needed before. He built walls in our special units, tore down those walls and built other walls - always putting others’ needs above his own. On top of a major construction project, he helped staff deal with the unexpected and tragic deaths of three of OLWT's independent living residents. While managing his everyday department tasks, pandemic tasks, and a new building, he continued to show his endurance by leading staff to complete OLWT's 2021 and 2022 Great Place to Work Survey - bringing in 100% participation in the environmental services department - a first-time feat!”


In the coming weeks, we’ll continue to highlight our winners in a series of spotlight blogs. Be sure to follow along!
