At the top of the list of changes for the company that took over management and operations of Peabody Care Center LLC was a name change. Mission Health Communities LLC, the new provider, changed the name to Peabody Health and Rehab.
Mission Health Communities LLC is a premier provider of Senior Living and Skilled Rehabilitation Communities in the southeast and Midwest.
“We are excited to now be managing this facility; it’s a great addition to the Mission Health family,” President and CEO of Mission Health Communities Stuart Lindeman said. “In addition to a new name — we will be implementing a number of positive and much needed changes to the property, including making upgrades and renovations, to ensure we’re able to deliver the same high-quality care provided at all Mission Health Communities.”
Mission Health Communities LLC is based in Tampa, Florida and manages 31 additional Communities that provide an array of sub-acute nursing care, skilled care, and rehabilitation therapy services, with a focus on wellness and enriched quality of life for residents.
“We are excited at the prospect of MHC taking over the management here,” administrator Melissa Parmley said. “Members of the corporate staff have been here a lot and have made the effort to make things go smoothly. Just knowing they have the intention and resources to help us get through the transition means a lot.”
Parmley said that while basic services at the facility will not change, there will be additional emphasis on rehabilitation therapy.
“We will be developing it more to better serve the residents,” she said. “We have a really great rehab department, but now it will get more attention and new programs that hopefully will serve more residents.”
Parmley said an engineer had already been on the premises to look over the flooding problem that developed on the west side of the care facility two years ago during heavy summer rains.
“I am really excited about their plans for the downstairs apartments,” she said. “They are confident they can address the drainage issue and finally get it fixed so the problem won’t return every time it rains.”
