2021 Year in Review

Looking back at 2021 and forward to a great 2022!

Over the last year the Spring Harbor Community came together in so many positive ways. While the uncertainty of the COVID pandemic brought about significant changes and stresses to our daily lives, there were some bright spots. And now, we have so much to look forward to in 2022.

As this New Year gets underway, we'd like to reaffirm that safety is our number one priority here on campus. We’re committed to residents and their families with our exceptional COVID Management and Safety Protocols.  

We’d like to highlight some events and measures put in place last year in each of the departments, which will continue to positively impact the community in the year ahead of us:
