Third Strategic Planning Educational Program On Tuesday To Feature Steve Lindsey, CEO of Gardenspot Village, Talking on “Innovation in Action: Ten Things We’ve Learned”

At 10:00 AM in the Auditorium on Tuesday the Strategic Planning Committee welcomes everyone to hear Steve Lindsey, CEO of Gardenspot Village, which is in Lancaster County Pennsylvania.

He will talk on Innovation in Action: Ten Things We’ve Learned.

I encourage all here to browse Gardenspot’s website, and get ourselves primed for questions about how they made things happen and work.

Steve describes himself on linkedin.com as follows:

Steve Lindsey is the Chief Executive Officer of Garden Spot Village, a CCRC of 900+ residents lindseylocated in New Holland, PA. Garden Spot Village has been an early adopter of the household approach to skilled nursing and has introduced a “person centered” approach throughout the organization. Steve has more than twenty years of administrative experience in both the retirement community and rehabilitation hospital fields. Steve is a licensed nursing home administrator, has an MSW from Temple University and a BA from Messiah College. He is involved in numerous nonprofit boards and has been a frequent speaker at regional, state and national conferences.

This presentation will be particularly important as our eight strategic planning workgroups, comprised of Board, staff and residents, are even now starting to meet and lay out their visions, plans, and information gathering process.  The references to “household approach” and to “person centered”, echo strongly with many of the Kendal perspectives laid out by Sean Kelly ten days ago.  It’s an exciting time here.

  1. The farm-to-table sourcing for their eats is an excellent idea and one to be looked at seriously at Collington. Also, their shop seems to be an improvement on what we currently have.
