We are over the moon. For the fourth year in a row we have been awarded Best of the Best. This year we were lucky enough to win in all three categories of Best Assisted Living, Best Retirement Facility and Best Place to Work. Thank you so much!

I want to send a huge thank you to our incredible staff here at The Willows. Thank you all, for your dedication, your deeply caring personalities, your humor (which is very important!) and your collective vision in embracing this Willows family and this culture of putting residents first. You are the ones who win this award every day, showing up and giving so much of your hearts to this place and these residents. You make The Willows the wonderful community that it is.

I want to thank our founders, The Daniels Family, and our Management team, Brenda, Blake, David, Danielle, Felicia, Hailey, Tina, Esmerelda. All of you, thank you for your support in building this place and this team. We have created something different and special together here and I could not have done this without you all.

And I want to thank the community of Marshalltown. Thank you for seeing us and for recognizing the unique place we have built. It means so much to us to show up at work every day with the appreciation of this community at our back. Any storm that comes our way, we feel ready to face with this team and this community behind us.

We will not let you down. We pledge to keep working every day to do justice to this award and strive to be the best of the best; by supporting one another, by working to create the best quality of life possible for seniors at The Willows, and by honoring this great community we are lucky enough to live in.

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.
