Friendship Health & Rehab Center Promotes Tashina Adams to Director of Nursing

Friendship Retirement Community, a local leader in senior living and rehabilitation, announces the promotion of Tashina Adams from Assistant Director of Nursing to Director of Nursing of Friendship Health & Rehab Center.

“Tashina’s professionalism and excellent communications skills have been her strengths since her first days with Friendship,” said Ben Higgins, Friendship’s Vice President of Healthcare Operations.  “So, in a time where culture and teamwork are differentiators to combat staffing challenges, Tashina was a natural fit to lead our skilled nursing facility.”

Adams joined the Friendship team in 2018 as the Assistant Director of Nursing for Friendship Health & Rehab Center. Adams has been a nurse for the last 22 years, serving in leadership roles across the Roanoke Valley in both the acute care setting and the post-acute long-term care setting.

“I am excited for the opportunity to grow with Friendship, a company whose values – accountability, respectfulness, or teamwork, for instance - closely mirror my personal convictions and how I like to lead. We have a strong team here at Friendship Health & Rehab Center and I’m proud to foster an environment where our caregivers can prioritize high quality care for our residents.”

“Tashina has a dynamic background that she brings to the table.  But, most importantly, she calls others to service by leading from the front, staying engaged with the team while continuing to map out plans for continuous quality improvement,” Higgins added.

Friendship Health & Rehab Center is also seeking caring and qualified individuals to join their teams. Interested candidates should apply online at
