Kettering Health Senior Living (formerly Sycamore Glen Retirement Community) has entered a long-term strategic partnership with Community First Solutions. Starting today, Community First Solutions will support the facility’s operations, lending their senior living expertise to support the development, advancement, and innovation of programming, practices, and procedures for Kettering Health Senior Living’s business model.
Kettering Health Senior Living has served Greater Dayton since the 1970s, originally opening to provide care for retired Kettering Health employees. It now includes independent living houses, apartments, and assisted living all conveniently located on the campus of Kettering Health Miamisburg.
“We want our residents and their loved ones to have the utmost confidence in the depth of expertise and care, as well as the longevity of our programs,” explained Erica Schneider, president of Kettering Health Miamisburg. “As one of our largest populations has reached retirement age amidst rapid changes in healthcare policy, Medicare, and more, this partnership with Community First Solutions will help us provide the best care in a collaborative context.”
Headquartered in Butler County, Community First Solutions is a nonprofit network with an established history of caring for older adults, through innovative programs and scalable and sustainable models of care. Community First Solutions has a long history of partnering with Kettering Health Hamilton, making them an established, trusted partner in this new joint venture with Kettering Health Senior Living.
“Connecting our expertise and mission to focus on the care of Kettering Health Senior Living residents is at the heart of this partnership,” explained Community First Solutions President and CEO Brett Kirkpatrick. “As healthcare continues to become more complex, our operational insights, processes, and deep experience in caring for seniors will help guide Kettering Health Senior Living into the future. This partnership is well aligned with our mission and growth strategy, leveraging our shared service business model to strengthen a long-standing partnership and expanding our regional senior living footprint.”
The new partnership is focused on strategic leadership, operational expertise, and gaining efficiency and scale, but no facilities or properties will be sold to Community First Solutions. Kettering Health leadership will also approve any recommendations provided by Community First Solutions.
