Two senior living and services organizations, Life Enriching Communities (LEC) and The Wesley Communities (TWC), have signed a letter of intent to move into full affiliation.
In a statement released on Wednesday, October 13, the two affiliates of the West Ohio Conference made the announcement after many months of discussion.
Scott McQuinn, President/CEO of LEC said, “Some of the pressures in the market that are driving this consolidation are the complexities of health care, competition, ability to attract and retain talent, technology, and financial capacity. We are looking forward to working with the team at The Wesley Communities to establish greater efficiencies and effectiveness to benefit the residents and associates of each community.”
Margaret “Peg” Carmany, CEO of TWC said, “We believe this is the perfect opportunity. given that we are both faith-based, mission-driven and United Methodist affiliated. The timing is right, and we are confident the combination is in the best interest of residents and staff now, and those of the future.”
Combined, LEC and TWC serves close to 3,000 seniors and has 1,200 associates.
