“I am honored to be recognized among this group of distinguished business leaders. Since Harrison Senior Living was founded 50 years ago, we have strived toward the success and happiness of our residents and staff alike. We aim to set ourselves apart from other senior living facilities by providing a homelike experience for our residents so they can focus on getting better in a comfortable environment—while also providing our staff an environment in which they can thrive. I have remained focused on these goals through the challenges brought about over the last couple of years,” said Saunders. “I am proud to report that we saw improved quality outcomes in our residents and staff through the pandemic and beyond.”
