Ohio Presbyterian Retirement Services, the largest not-for-profit operator of continuing care retirement / life plan communities in the Buckeye State, has changed its name to Ohio Living.
Senior Independence, the Columbus, OH-based organization’s home health and hospice provider, will be known as Ohio Living Home Health & Hospice, and the charitable foundation will be called Ohio Living Foundation.
“We selected Ohio Living because it embodies the essence of who we are as an organization, a community of people who celebrate living,” said Ohio Living CEO Laurence C. Gumina. “We believe this new brand is an expression of our organizational values and speaks to the principles of who we are and the care and support we provide to the more than 73,000 adults and to our 3,200+ employees throughout the state of Ohio. Our people, mission and ownership will remain the same, while our new name positions us to meet the needs of today’s and future generations.”
The organization’s 12 CCRCs will add Ohio Living in front of their existing community named and remove references to “retirement” or “communities” from their names.
Ohio Living said the name change was the result of a process that sought to honor the company’s nearly 95-year history while remaining relevant to current and future generations. The company will honor its faith-based heritage and culture with a new tagline: Faith, Compassion and Community.
