The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), Columbus, is proud to announce 2019 Visionary Award Honoree Eleanor Alvarez.
The Visionary Awards are bestowed on local women business owners who have achieved success with their businesses while making notable contributions to their community, their industry, and to initiatives for other women in business.
Eleanor N. Alvarez, BA, MAT, MAgS is Founder & President of The Ganzhorn Suites and LeaderStat, LLC. She has more than 30 years of management experience in the post-acute and senior living fields as a provider and a consultant. Her areas of expertise include skilled nursing, assisted living operations, facility analysis and acquisitions, start-ups and turn-arounds. During her years working for national corporations, Eleanor was responsible for the operational management of more than 25 facilities. She opened skilled nursing and assisted living facilities, developed numerous high acuity specialty units and stabilized troubled centers. She gained entrepreneurial experience when she opened LeaderStat, an interim management, recruiting and consulting firm which grew from a small start-up into one of the top healthcare recruiting and consulting firms in the country.
Beyond LeaderStat, Eleanor is very proud of her most recent accomplishment, the launch of The Ganzhorn Suites, a specialized memory care center in Powell, Ohio (2016). The Ganzhorn Suites promotes a resident-centered, evidence-based approach for caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia. The center offers a secure, yet stimulating, environment for this vulnerable population by incorporating advanced safety and monitoring technologies and a beautiful, inviting, purpose-built design. Certified staff are hand-picked for their commitment to this population, and residents are engaged in researched-based programming developed by Eleanor herself. The programs and services offered are designed to nurture the mind, body and spirit, so that residents can live fully – no matter where they may be in their own personal journeys. 5
NAWBO Columbus recognizes and honors these women to showcase the amazing women who not only own and operate businesses that are vital to Ohio’s economy, but who also find time and resources to identify community needs and drive social change.
Eleanor will be recognized on Friday, June 28, 2019, at 11:30 a.m. during the Visionary Leadership Conference at the OSU Marriott Hotel.
