Dear CLC – Cappella Family,
Together, we WILL get through this. This is a phrase our leadership team uses daily. It is essential to say often as now, more than ever, we as a community of caring people must come together, and each do our part to combat the spread of Coronavirus. We must care for one another in significant ways during this difficult and uncertain time.
My personal commitment – to cherished residents and clients, to team members working tirelessly in all 24 communities, and to the supportive families — is simply this: We will do everything in our power to protect EVERYONE who lives and works in EVERY community.
While this is not the ideal time for the CLC Board of Directors to embark on a search for a new CEO as Terry Rogers has left for a new position in Florida, please know the organization is stable, secure, and capable. I am confident in the team. I have faith in the organization.
I have been a part of the CLC-Cappella family for 16 years, 13 of those as the Chief Operating Officer. I have served as the President of Cappella. Our team is highly-trained, long-tenured and dedicated. We are CALLED to the work we do. I am humbled and inspired at how everyone has come together and put others ahead of themselves.
As I undertake the role of Interim CEO, I have named Pam Sullivan as the Interim Senior Vice President of Strategy and Communication. Pam has also been with the organization for 16 years. In this role, she will serve as the lead project manager for large organizational initiatives. She has been managing the COVID-19 response since early March. Additionally, three of our Vice Presidents will report to her for daily operational support during this interim CEO time frame.
We are all on high alert, and the developing situation is under constant scrutiny. We continue to respond to all developments with professionalism and compassion, keeping the safety of residents and team members as our highest priority. TOGETHER, WE WILL get through this.
Camille M. Burke | Interim Chief Executive Officer
We own and manage senior living communities alongside our parent company, Christian Living Communities.
"When we moved to Holly Creek we thought about what is visible, such as interiors, apartment layout, dining areas, which are all very nice but after living here for a year we have discovered what is most important is the people that live here and employees, who are all so considerate and kind who are at the HEART of Holly Creek. They make Holly Creek a special place in which to live."
