Leadership Team

Emily Fox

Vice President of Operations

Emily started her career in health care as a nurse aide in an assisted living. She holds a Bachelor’s of Science from Kent State with a concentration in Nursing Home Administration. She’s currently enrolled in Michigan State University’s Master of Management, Strategy, and Leadership Program.

Emily joined the Sprenger team in 2009 as an Activities Assistant, was promoted to traveling Admissions/Social Services Director, then started at Horn as the Assistant Administrator, Social Services, and Admissions Director. One year later she became the Administrator for Amherst Manor and has since been the Administrator for several of our locations.

“My philosophy in health care is that everyone deserves ‘loving’. Health care is not a discriminatory industry, and I continuously reinforce that with my team. Whether the choices our residents made led them to needing our assistance, or if it’s just the natural course of life everyone deserves ‘loving’. I often say that no one wants to be in a skilled nursing facility, but since they’re here it’s our job to make their stay as enjoyable as possible. No matter if they are here for rehab and going home, or living with us long-term, it’s our job to treat them with the same dignity and respect we would want for ourselves or our loved ones.”

Emily is a proud receiver of the 2014, 2015, and 2016 Eli Pick Leadership Award, she’s been nominated twice for the Kent State University Human Development and Family Studies Hall of Fame, and was nominated as the 30 under 30 for Cleveland Young Professionals Award.  She belongs to OHCA, ACHE and ACHE early careerist, and AHCA.  Her facilities have received a Bronze Award, 5 Star Facility Award, and 2 Deficiency Free Surveys which led to many new company wide initiatives.
