Share Article

Mary Cordts brings a community-oriented approach along with a wealth of health care and senior services experience to the Seattle retirement community.

Bayview Manor Retirement Community welcomes Mary Cordts as their new CEO and Nursing Home Administrator. She takes over for long time administrator, Rich Tomlinson, who stepped down to happily pursue his own retirement plans.

Cordts previous position was the Regional Director for Ecumen, including the duties of executive director of Ecumen’s Parmly LifePointes, a senior housing and community service campus located in Chisago City, Minnesota. She has had over 25 years of experience in these fields, ranging from hands-on health care to senior living administration and planning.

Coming to Parmly in 1996, Cordts brought a new approach to senior living, providing more than just resident care and basic programming. Under her guidance, what was just a board and care facility with local associated townhouses and apartments grew into a community-oriented campus that provided seniors with excellent care, while empowering them to live richer and fuller lives. Cordts credits a large part of her success at Parmly to the use of area focus groups to create a community plan.

Mary began her career as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), later becoming a Registered Nurse (RN) and then a Nursing Home Administrator for senior facilities. She has had over 25 years of experience in these fields, ranging from hands on health care to senior living administration and planning.

Originally from Two Harbors, Minnesota, Mary has raised two daughters and has many fond memories of growing up on the northern shores of Lake Superior.

She will be replacing Rich Tomlinson, who has served in various capacities at Bayview for the last 15 years. Eager to begin his retirement life, Tomlinson remains "excited about the community's prospects for the future," as well as the "ambitious plans for enhancing its services to [our region's] seniors."

Cordts begins her tenure at the Seattle retirement community on March 15th.
