Six senior living organizations have partnered to form The Colligo Group. The partners will retain their identities and autonomy while working together to impact the senior living industry.
Cornwall Manor, Fairmount Homes, Garden Spot Communities, Moravian Manor Communities, The Highlands at Wyomissing and Virginia Mennonite Retirement Community form the new collective.
“The Colligo Group’s vision is to be recognized as the catalyst for a new vision of aging,” according to a press release from the consortium.
The group will first tackle labor force challenges, including recruitment and compensation before moving on to technology needs. The partners plan to increase their networking and knowledge-sharing capabilities as they move forward.
“This is truly a new approach, a new way to grow and flourish. The partners truly desire to create an authentic, partner-centered learning community, committed to taking on some of the significant challenges of our industry,” Steve Jeffrey, ForgeWorks co-founder and president of The Colligo Group, stated in a press release.
“Now more than ever, it is important for leaders in our industry to engage, share learnings and work together in the best interest of the amazing communities of senior adults we serve,” said Kevin DeAcosta, president and CEO of The Highlands at Wyomissing. “In part through The Colligo Group and the collaborative environment it will foster, our partners will remain committed to setting the standard of excellence in retirement living and to further enhancing our offerings for current and future generations.”
