GAINESVILLE, Fla (PRWEB) April 02, 2013
Florida Governor Rick Scott has announced the appointment of Troy Hart, President of SantaFe Senior Living, to serve on the Continuing Care Advisory Council (CCAC). According to the governor’s office, Hart’s appointment is the result of his expertise in the industry and a demonstrated ability to serve with excellence and distinction. Hart succeeds James Emerson on the council and his term continues through September 30, 2014.
“It’s a privilege and honor to serve on the council,” Hart says. “I think it’s a reflection of our organization’s commitment to the health, well-being and security of older adults across the state of Florida.”
In 2007, Hart joined SantaFe HealthCare, a family of not-for-profit health care organizations in Florida. He’s served as president of SantaFe Senior Living since 2009, operating continuing care retirement communities in Gainesville and Cutler Bay (Miami area), as well as a third opening later this year in Bonita Springs. Hart is responsible for the growth and financial stability of the organization and its retirement communities. Under his leadership, he’s also launched a variety of innovative programs and services benefitting thousands of seniors.
Hart’s role on the CCAC for the State of Florida includes acting in an advisory capacity to the governor’s office on matters pertaining to the operation and regulation of continuing care retirement communities, recommending any changes in statutes or rules and, upon request, assist with any corrective action, rehabilitation or cessation of a business plan of a provider.
“Hospitality is the cornerstone of the environment and service we provide at our retirement communities,” says Hart. “And a mission-driven focus, serving seniors with their best interests in mind, is what I’ll bring to the table in this role for the governor and people in the state of Florida.”
SantaFe Senior Living creates retirement communities that provide active seniors with a variety of services and living options as their needs change, and is the not-for-profit operator of The Village in Gainesville, East Ridge at Cutler Bay and The Terraces at Bonita Springs (opening later this year). SantaFe Senior Living is part of SantaFe HealthCare, a not-for-profit family of companies that also includes AvMed Health Plans and Haven Hospice. Founded in the early 1980s, SantaFe HealthCare, based in Gainesville, Florida, provides a continuum of care options to Floridians through all stages of their lives. The organization has grown to employ approximately 500 team members and serve more than 900 seniors.
