Transition Update Final — January 10, 2020

We are pleased to announce that the Board has hired Lisa Marsilio as KCC’s next CEO.

Lisa MarsilioLisa has extensive experience leading health care organizations, including three years as CEO/Executive Director of a post-acute care network created to serve the University of Pennsylvania Health System and six years as a Vice President and Administrator with the Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network in Allentown and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. In those roles, Lisa worked collaboratively with patients, staff and local communities to achieve positive growth by focusing on best practices and quality outcomes.

Lisa also served for six years as an adjunct faculty member of the Wescoe School of Muhlenberg College in Allentown teaching courses on health care delivery systems, regulatory compliance and marketing. She has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Muhlenberg College and master’s degree in business administration from DeSales University in Center Valley, Pennsylvania.

Time spent with Lisa during interviews and group gatherings makes us confident that Lisa will be dedicated to Kendal’s Values and Practices and embrace our history and traditions, while exploring with the community ways to innovate and lead positive change. The Board looks forward to working with Lisa as we move forward with repositioning and strategic planning.

Lisa’s first day at KCC will be Tuesday, January 21st. Kevin Jones will stay with us through the end of that week to help Lisa get oriented.

We are sure residents and staff are looking forward to getting to know Lisa, and we know she is excited about getting to know everyone at KCC. There will be many opportunities to meet Lisa in various settings, so please keep an eye open for upcoming events.

Transition Update #13 — November 25, 2019

Since our last update there has been some exciting activity on finding our new CEO.

Diversified Search interviewed a number of candidates and narrowed the list down to about a dozen to present to the committee for consideration. Several weeks ago the committee and Diversified went through the list, reviewed resumes and bios of each candidate and after a couple calls and tough decisions we narrowed the pool down to six individuals that we wanted to meet in person.

We recently spent a day and a half interviewing the six excellent candidates and then gathered for the difficult task of identifying the three individuals that we wanted to bring back to the campuses and meet with various stakeholders.

In the near future these candidates will be visiting the community, each for a full day, to meet with various stakeholders. Diversified will be coordinating these meetings and details will be forthcoming from them shortly. The purpose of these meetings is for different individuals to meet with each candidate and provide the committee with their impressions of each person. The committee is seeking information that will be used to decide on which candidate will be recommended to the full board.

Please don’t hold us to this timeline because the holidays and unknowns can derail us a bit, but we anticipate this final selection to be completed by the end of the year. After completion of requisite background checks of the candidate, we will be in a position to announce the name of the community’s next CEO. Hopefully at that time, or shortly thereafter, we will also be able to announce when the CEO will be joining us.
