Wesley Homes Retirement Communities and Home Health Services welcomes Patrick O’Neill as the new campus administrator for Wesley Homes Des Moines.
As administrator, O’Neill will oversee a 45-acre community, which consists of three apartment buildings, multiple independent living residences, assisted living apartments and a skilled nursing center. Additionally, he will be responsible for the adult day care center and Northwest Conference of the United Methodist Church buildings that are also part of the Des Moines campus.
O’Neill comes to Wesley Homes with a strong background in retirement home leadership as administrator for two retirement communities in Tacoma before becoming president and CEO of a community in Spokane.
“I am very excited to join the dynamic team at Wesley Homes,” said O’Neill. “They have developed a tremendous reputation for exceptional service and deliver a high quality of care to their residents. I look forward to learning, listening and contributing to this progressive organization.”
