Executive Director Lori
Lori Hawkes
Executive Director

We welcome Lori Hawkes to Springs Village Care Center as the Administrator. Lori has been a nurse for 26 years, working in such settings as med/surgery, oncology, home health care, assisted living and skilled nursing. Lori’s career mostly has been geriatric population, as her love for seniors is exuberant. Lori started her career with Springs Village in 2015 as the Assistant Director of Nursing, then becoming the Director of Nursing. During that time, Springs Village Care Center earned the Silver Award for Quality Care, a five star rating from CMS and a deficiency free survey. When the opportunity arose for me to become the administrator, it just made sense to step Lori into the role of an Administrator. Lori graciously accepted the challenge and continue her professional career in Long Term Care.
