"I am looking forward to taking on this exciting role. It is truly a landmark time in the history of The Village as we undertake our new expansion effort. With these new plans, we will continue to provide our residents with high quality care they've come to expect, while offering expanded service offerings that will elevate their experience," said Heath.
