Ohio Presbyterian changes name
Ohio Presbyterian Retirement Services has changed its name to Ohio Living.
Senior Independence, the organization's home health and hospice provider, will be known as Ohio Living Home Health & Hospice, and their charitable foundation will be called the 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,” explained 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-plus 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 continuing care retirement communities will have Ohio Living in front of the existing community name and remove “retirement” or “communities” from their names.
The provider noted the name change was “the result of a thoughtful process that sought to honor the company's nearly 95-year history while remaining relevant to current generations and those well into the future.”
The company said it would honor its faith-based heritage and culture with the new tagline -- “Faith, Compassion and Community.”
