St. Ann’s was recently named one of West Michigan’s 2017 “Best and Brightest Companies to Work For” by the Michigan Business & Professional Association, or MBPA. St. Ann’s will be recognized with other honorees at an awards banquet on May 3 at the J.W. Marriott. “This is a great honor and a recognition of where we are headed as an organization,” said Executive Director Dana Prince. “While we welcome this award and pause to enjoy the moment, we see it as one step on a journey and a commitment to continual improvement for our staff and residents.”
