Wilmington, Ohio (PRWEB) October 22, 2013
A successful, experienced executive director has been chosen to lead Cape May Retirement Village as it expands to include a new 24-hour nursing and rehabilitation center.
Jean Morgan took the lead at the Southwest Ohio retirement community in July 2013. Immediately prior, Morgan held the same position at Swan Creek Retirement Village, Cape May's sister campus in Toledo, for six years.
A licensed nursing home administrator since 1989, Morgan has been working in the long-term care industry for 32 years, serving older adults with Ohio Presbyterian Retirement Services (OPRS) for 25 of those years.
Leadership of the entire Wilmington campus — including its villa homes, independent apartments, assisted living and addition of a 30-bed health care center — are under Morgan's direction. Opening in early 2014, the health care center will support Clinton and surrounding counties' older adults, providing personalized, quality care.
"Choosing the right leader was vital as we expand Cape May," says OPRS Communities President Daniel J. O'Connor. "Jean skillfully managed large construction projects and is a confident, natural team-builder. Her creative leadership and warm personality guarantee success with her residents and their families, employees, volunteers and board members."
Morgan succeeds Ann Roller, who remains with OPRS Communities. Roller acted as the interim executive director while leading Dorothy Love Retirement Community, in Sidney, Ohio.
"I've spent my first months here learning the culture and meeting the people. My immediate future includes really getting to know each resident and employee, assisting the leadership team in guiding employees toward focused, excellent care, and overseeing the care and services that will be offered in the all-new health care center," says Morgan.
Morgan has a Bachelor of Education from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, and has a nursing home administrator license. She is a Monroe, Ohio, native. Morgan has one son, a freshman at Baldwin Wallace University in Berea, Ohio.
