Kelly McCool - senior director of admissions and marketing at Barclay Friends

Kelly McCool will be the next senior director of admissions and marketing at Barclay Friends, a Kendal-affiliated senior living community with a skilled nursing unit. McCool will continue her extensive career in healthcare administration at the center in West Chester, Pennsylvania. 

McCool graduated from Albright College with a bachelor’s in business and psychology. She then moved to West Chester and worked for Barclay Friends for more than 20 years, most recently as an admissions and utilization review manager. 

McCool is preceded by Faith Woodward, Barclay Friends’ former senior director of admissions and sales, who held the position for nearly 40 years before retiring. 

 “We are pleased to have Kelly lead our admissions and marketing efforts,” said Barclay Friends’ Executive Director Linda Sterthous. “With her extensive experience in non-profit healthcare settings, her knowledge and energy will be invaluable as we continue to attract residents to the high-quality care we provide.”
