GAINESVILLE, Fla., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- North Florida Retirement Village, Inc., "The Village," announced today that Rick Heath has been named as its new Administrator.

Heath has been an active participant in civic and professional organizations, serving on the Board of Directors, House of Delegates and Nominations and Awards Committee of the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging. Heath holds an M.S. in Gerontology and Business Administration from the University of North Texas, and a B.A. from The Ohio State University.

"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.
