Twice a year, one Star winner from the previous six months is selected by each center to win the semi-annual Shining Star award. Winners attend a recognition luncheon with Senior Management and receive a customized award, $100 gift and an award certificate. The Southern California and Arizona regional luncheon was held on Thursday, August 16, 2018 at Il Cielo in Beverly Hills. “It is an honor to take part in recognizing our “Stars” at our semi-annual Windsor Stars luncheon,” says Greg Davis, Southern California Regional Director of Operations. “This is a great opportunity for all of us to reflect on the wonderful difference each of our team members makes in our residents’ lives.

Robinson began working as Director of Operations for SnF Management, LLC, a management consulting company to Windsor Salinas, in January, 2007. Seven years later, she was hired at Windsor Salinas as their Senior Administrator. In June, 2016, Robinson was promoted to director of Sub-Acute Programs at Windsor Salinas overseeing operational workflow for the care and services of ventilated and acutely comprised patients. To recognize the commitment and value that Robinson brought to patients, families and countless employees throughout her tenure with Windsor Salinas over the past decade, Windsor hosted a special dedication ceremony at Windsor Salinas. It selected the renaming of the Sub-Acute Unit as the most appropriate way to honor Robinson’s service. As Pam Norris, Regional Clinical Director for Windsor, explained, “We gave the loving gift of a living legacy to a very special woman.” Over 120 friends, family members and co-workers attended the dedication ceremony. A musical reception was followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony of the renamed unit, and a speech by Rachyl Bruton, Administrator at another Windsor care center, The Ridge. Bruton  spoke about Robinson’s role and influence in the organization. “Mary has been my mentor, colleague, and friend for over 20 years,” says Bruton. “Mary decorated and helped design the Rehabilitation Home Transitional Care Unit in The Ridge, while at the same time worked on the respiratory unit at Windsor Gardens Salinas. She has always been project-driven, available to answer questions and share her knowledge, 24-7. I have tremendous gratitude for everything she has done for me, my employees, and the rest of Windsor. “
