David Parker will be the next president of Toledo, OH-based ProMedica’s HCR ManorCare division, including Arden Courts memory care communities, effective June 3, ProMedica announced Thursday.
Currently the chief operating officer, Parker will succeed Steve Cavanaugh, who has been appointed chief financial officer of the ProMedica system.
“Having worked alongside David for decades, I am confident he has the expertise and strategic vision needed to effectively lead HCR ManorCare into the future,” Cavanaugh said in a statement. “I can’t imagine anyone better to lead HCR ManorCare going forward, and I look forward to continuing to work with David in his new capacity.”
Over the past 25 years, Parker has held several leadership roles at HCR ManorCare. Since 2017, he has been responsible for overseeing operations at the company, which has senior living communities and skilled nursing facilities, home healthcare and hospice agencies, and outpatient rehabilitation clinics.
Before being named to his current position, Parker was vice president and general manager of the Central Division of the company’s skilled nursing and rehabilitation operations. In early 2017, he also took on interim responsibility for HCR’s SNF West Division. Before that, he had been vice president and general manager of the former SNF Mid-Atlantic Division since 2007. In 2006, Parker was named vice president and assistant general manager of the Central Division, advancing from assistant vice president and assistant general manager for the division, a position he held since 2003.
