Janice Patton of Birmingham, has been promoted to regional vice president of operations at Legacy Senior Living, a Cleveland-based management company of 14 assisted living and memory care facilities across the Southeast.

In her new role, Ms. Patton will oversee the company’s operations in Alabama and South Georgia. These include The Harbor at Hickory Hill (Prattville, Al.), The Harbor at Opelika (Opelika, Al.), Legacy Village of Jacksonville (Jacksonville, Al.), Legacy Village at Park Regency (Moultrie, Ga.) and Legacy Village at Plantation Manor (Thomasville, Ga.).

Previously serving as director of sales and marketing, Ms.
Patton has coordinated the company’s efforts to acquire, stabilize and enhance senior living communities that underwent transition under previous ownership.

“Janice specializes in community turnaround and staff development, which has directly resulted in higher resident satisfaction, increased building occupancy, reduced staff turnaround and a healthier reputation in each community we are privileged to serve. Legacy Senior Living locations in Alabama and South Georgia are in high demand due in no small part to Janice’s ability to develop strong teams of caregivers who create a genuinely warm home for seniors. She is a servant leader who consistently empowers our care teams to serve with compassion and excellence,” said Bryan Cook, chief operating officer of Legacy Senior Living.

Prior to joining the Legacy Senior Living executive team in 2013, Ms. Patton served in administrative, marketing and community relations roles at senior living facilities in North Carolina and Alabama.

“I believe that seniors, families and team members who are joined in our communities are called to be together, and it’s my pleasure to work with the team to ensure they have the highest quality of care so they can love one another and enjoy a new chapter in their story.  It’s truly a calling for all of us.” said Ms. Patton.

She is a graduate of North Carolina State University with a bachelor’s degree in communication and lives in Birmingham with her husband and three children.  Ms. Patton is a member at Canterbury Methodist Church.
