LifeSpire of Virginia Leadership Team Prepares for Ownership Transition

It has been a busy four weeks since our last post as the LifeSpire of Virginia leadership team prepares for the anticipated transaction closing on September 30 and assumes ownership on October 1. 

Following a comprehensive benefits presentation by LifeSpire of Virginia’s benefits administrator, Scott Insurance, on August 23, the LifeSpire of Virginia leadership team has been onsite at The Summit to assist team members with the onboarding process. All team members have signed their offer letters and completed the benefits enrollment process. 

On August 26, after months of careful consideration, LifeSpire of Virginia announced to its team members that the organization will be instating a COVID-19 vaccine mandate across all LifeSpire of Virginia communities and the home office. LifeSpire of Virginia is following guidance received from The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requiring all nursing home team members to become vaccinated.  Absent further guidance from CMS on the timing, LifeSpire of Virginia announced that the vaccine will be required by October 10. 

On September 2, LifeSpire of Virginia announced Adam Feldbauer as The Summit’s Executive Director. Feldbauer has more than 10 years of experience in senior living and healthcare organizations and became a licensed nursing home administrator in 2014. He will join The Summit on October 1.  

The LifeSpire of Virginia leadership team participated in a Family Night for The Summit Assisted Living residents and family members on September 14 to share information about what to expect in the weeks and months ahead.
