Life Care Centers of America named Jennifer Solomon as vice president of its Eastern Division.
In this role, Ms. Solomon will oversee operations at the company’s 39 skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities in Georgia, Kentucky, the Carolinas, Tennessee and Virginia. That includes the Chattanooga-area centers.
“I am humbled and blessed to work with the compassionate associates in the Eastern Division,” said Ms. Solomon. “I love Life Care’s passion and perseverance to provide quality care to our residents and patients. It has been our culture from the very beginning, and it can be seen every day through the kindness and dedication of our front-line associates.”
Solomon most recently served for more than eight years as vice president of the Appalachian Region within Life Care’s Eastern Division. Before that, she was executive director at Life Care Center of Greeneville, Tn., for five years. She has been with Life Care for 22 years.
“Jennifer Solomon is the embodiment of the servant-leader concept espoused by Jesus,” said Beecher Hunter, Life Care president. “She is uniquely gifted with professional skills to serve others, and she is driven by a heart of love and compassion for all people she encounters – including, in particular, residents and patients with care needs, their families and the associates she leads. From the first day she joined Life Care as a social services assistant at Life Care Center of Greeneville in 1997, it was instantly obvious that she had a bright future in health care. Our Eastern Division is in good hands with her at the helm.”
Cathy Murray, Life Care’s chief operating officer, said, “Jennifer is an experienced and caring leader who has her priorities in the right place. Residents come first, and her teams look up to her and respect her. We are pleased to have her leading the Eastern Division.”
Originally from Greeneville, Ms. Solomon has a master’s degree in counseling and a bachelor’s degree in psychology. She and her husband, Lance, have a 16-year-old daughter, Kaytelyn. They reside in Greeneville.
