ERH, $110 Million, and the Future of Senior Care

Episcopal Retirement Homes (ERH) is a much bigger player in this market than you might think. After 65 years of compassionate, quality care, a massive, regional expansion campaign ensues.

Renovating and adding innovative services, building a regional network.

ERH covers the gamut: high-end senior living to low-income apartments at the YMCA.

Person-Centered Care: at the heart of it all, the ERH way.

[CINCINNATI, Ohio ~ Jan. 26, 2016] Doug Spitler has heard the buzzwords, call it jargon, bantered about forever: taking care of seniors is a “people-first business,” requires a “people-friendly” environment, woven into a “people-centric” tapestry of care and concern.

We put our money where our elders are,” said the president and CEO of a fast-growing senior-services organization expanding throughout the Tri-State area, Episcopal Retirement Homes (ERH).

And today, in 2016 numbers, that’s thousands of seniors in our care, to whom we are committing $110 million.”

In the big picture, ERH projects its 27-community portfolio to grow by almost 40 percent over the next several years with the addition, construction and/or expansion of another 10 senior-care communities.

ERH (www.episcopalretirement.com), founded in conjunction with the Episcopal Diocese in Cincinnati in 1951, has grown far beyond its Episcopal roots to embrace persons of all faiths.

Celebrating its 65th year in business in 2016, this (formerly) small Cincinnati not-for-profit has grown to a network of senior-care communities and services located across Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.

This story is about the future of health care, which is starting now, for a fast-growing segment of American society – our elders, who are living longer and are more active than ever before,” said Spitler, “and it’s also about a Cincinnati senior-services agency – steeped in faith, history, tradition and experience – investing  more than $110 million to lead the way.”

ERH envisions a comprehensive approach to the future of health care, a powerful palette of partnerships including for-profit and non-profit organizations, hospital systems, real estate developers, government agencies, and even other competing retirement communities.

This innovative approach covers upscale retirement communities, home health services, and the fast-growing affordable housing market for lower-income seniors, plus a mix of social services to cover everything else in between.

The $110 million expansion campaign is targeting:

  • The $23 million renovation of the flagship ERH community, the upscale Marjorie P. Lee as well as Deupree House in Cincinnati;
  • A $17 million expansion and renovation campaign partnering with another non-profit senior services organization, also in Cincinnati;
  • An average of almost $10 million to be spent on seven other affordable living communities throughout Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana such as a complete renovation of the top floors above a YMCA called Central Parkway Place ($11.8M), Thomaston Woods ($10.9M), Knowlton Place ($10.7M), Marlowe Court, ($10.5M), Green Hills ($9.8M), Trent Village ($8.8M) and Walnut Court ($7.7M).

In addition, ERH has led in the formation of the Post-Acute Care Network (PACN), partnering with other retirement communities and a home healthcare company and offering hospital systems and insurance providers a cost-efficient solution for quality outcomes across a wide array of rehabilitation scenarios, and already participating in the Center for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) national bundled payment pilot program.

Since 1951, ERH has dedicated itself to improving the lives of older adults through innovative environments, and in-home and community-based services. ERH owns, manages or is currently developing 27 senior living communities, including two premier communities, Deupree House and Marjorie P. Lee, and 25 affordable housing communities.

ERH also operates Living Well Senior Solutions, a service that provides guidance to elders and their families on issues related to aging, Deupree Meals On Wheels, and Parish Health Ministry, which supports church 77 health ministries through advocacy, education and wellness programs.

‘CELEBRATING THE WORK’ – Green Hills Community President and CEO Mike Ray at grand opening of renovated Green Hills Apartments in West Liberty, Ohio

Posted in Episcopal Retirement Services (ERS) with tags , , , , , , on 11/13/2015 by @CincinnatiPR

Today we are celebrating the completion of the renovation of our affordable housing,” said Mike Ray, president and CEO of Green Hills Community in West Liberty, Ohio.

It’s a process that began with construction in September of 2014, and over the past 14 months, we have renovated 76 apartments, along with our rec center. And today we’re going to celebrate that.”

Mike Ray, president and CEO of http://www.greenhillscommunity.org

Mike Ray, president and CEO of http://www.greenhillscommunity.org

Green Hills Community  (http://www.greenhillscommunity.org) is about “Enriching All Seasons of Life.”

The community provides faith-based care and specializes in lifestyle design that enhances the physical, mental, social, emotional and spiritual aspects while respecting the need for independence, privacy and self-esteem.

The original apartments were constructed in 1975, and the second phase in 1980,” continued Mr. Ray, “we had identified that, although we had done a good job in maintaining them, there were just certain features of the apartments that needed some major renovation, which could not be completed inside the operating budget.

“We needed to seek another source of funding to complete that. In 2011 we began the process of looking at options.”

The Team

The Team

In 1968, a group of people in West Liberty had a dream to build a “senior citizen village.” Armed with their vision and strong determination, they set forth to make that dream a reality.

The first tangible step came from the West Liberty Sewing Circle which stepped up with a bake sale that raised $2,322 and the rest …. as they say ….. is history.

Today we’re going to have the parties involved in the funding of the project make a few comments, celebrate the work we have done today, and we’re gonna do a ribbon-cutting of our rec center and then we’re going to take a look at some of the newly-renovated apartments,” Mr. Ray said.

Green Hills Community is located a little less than an hour east of Dayton, Ohio, at 6557 U.S. Route 68. For more information, please call (937) 465-5065 or visit http://www.greenhillscommunity.org. For media inquiries, please contact Andy Hemmer at (513) 604-5428 or andy@andyhemmer.com.
