Dillsburg and Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) February 12, 2015
Presbyterian Senior Living and Cathedral Village announce that both Boards of Directors have approved an affiliation agreement to combine two of Pennsylvania’s leading providers of health care, housing, and related services to seniors. Under the agreement, Cathedral Village will become one of Presbyterian Senior Living’s subsidiary corporations and continue to serve older adults in the Philadelphia area.
“Presbyterian Senior Living and Cathedral Village share a common faith-based tradition, a range of high-quality services provided, and similarities in the individuals and communities served,” said Steve Proctor, Presbyterian Senior Living CEO. “With a contiguous service area, we’re able to foster the sharing of resources at a time when an increasingly complex environment requires the addition of specialized skills to meet the challenges of this population.”
Cathedral Village is considered one of the premier Continuing Care Retirement Communities in the greater Philadelphia area, offering 293 senior apartments and 133 newly renovated skilled nursing accommodations. The community was founded in 1979 with the support of the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania and other local charities serving seniors as an independent, nonprofit, retirement community.
Residents of Cathedral Village have access to three levels of service, including independent living apartments, personal care services licensed and provided within the apartments, and skilled nursing care. Skilled nursing services are supported by board-certified gerontologists affiliated with the Thomas Jefferson University Health System. Bishop White Lodge, the skilled nursing center at Cathedral Village holds a 5-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Cathedral Village holds a three-year accreditation from CARF-CCAC, an acknowledgement that is considered a national "seal of excellence" in identifying high quality programs and services to older adults.
Based in Dillsburg and founded in 1927, Presbyterian Senior Living is one of the largest not-for-profit providers of senior care in the country with 30 locations in the mid-Atlantic. Presbyterian Senior Living fulfills its charitable purpose and mission by providing a full range of high-quality healthcare, housing, and other related community services directed primarily to people 55 and over. Presbyterian Senior Living aging services also recently received a three-year accreditation from CARF-CCAC, and is committed to conforming to the high standards this accreditation requires.
“We are looking forward to sharing and expanding our expertise to better enable Cathedral Village to continue providing the highest quality of service and care,” said Dennis Koza, President and CEO of Cathedral Village. “This affiliation will also allow us to preserve and enhance the mission of both organizations to serve future generations of seniors.”
Leadership of both organizations agrees the affiliation will help to preserve and enhance the legacy of care and compassion that has been the hallmark of Cathedral Village for more than 35 years. Cathedral Village will continue its commitment to the community and its historic relationships with local Episcopal leaders and church members. “Cathedral Village is a quality organization that has stood the test of time,” said Proctor. “We’re looking forward to many more years of service with them.”
