Other officials participating included Collegedale Mayor John Turner and Chattanooga City Council Members Russell Gilbert, Larry Grohn and Moses Freeman.

Surrounded by a crowd of well-wishers and bankers representing 16 years of business, President Greg A. Vital and Chief Operating Officer Franklin Farrow thanked everyone for their support and for celebrating this very momentous occasion for IHP. 

“We couldn’t be more proud and excited about this day,” said Mr. Vital. “Our new location puts IHP and Ooltewah at the gateway of economic growth in Hamilton and Bradley Counties and sets the stage for the company to better serve the expanding senior healthcare industry.”

The new 11,000-square foot corporate office will house personnel including executive offices, human resources, accounting, IT and communications all who work to support the 23 Morning Pointe Assisted Living and The Lantern Alzheimer’s Memory Care Center of Excellence communities across a five state area.

IHP anchors the brand new Cambridge Square Development in Ooltewah. The 135-acre site just off Lee Highway near the entrance of the Honors Golf Course is set to showcase over 200,000 square feet of commercial space along with single family homes and townhomes.
