Kansas City Presbyterian Manor is part of a mission-driven organization stemming from our core and extending outward to all who encounter PMMA at any level. The basis for who we are and what we do hinges on that mission of providing quality senior services guided by Christian values.
As we have since inception, it is imperative PMMA continues to rebalance our services to remain true to the mission, adapt to the changing senior living landscape and remain diligent in focusing on future sustainability. We must ensure we are relevant for tomorrow’s senior living needs, which often times requires change today.
Effective July 1, Kansas City Presbyterian Manor is now
Riverbend Post-Acute Rehabilitation, an operating subsidiary
of The Ensign Group, Inc. For information, call 913-334-3666.
REAFFIRMING OUR PURPOSE FOR TOMORROW’S SENIOR LIVING NEEDS
To Our Employees
The compassionate care you provide every day to our residents and the empathy toward their families demonstrates the strong commitment KCPM offers in sustainable, mission-driven senior services. The healthcare landscape is ever changing, requiring organizations like ours to consistently monitor our current state and offerings, and evaluate how the future landscape will look.
The decision to sell KCPM was not an easy decision as this community has been part of the Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America system for nearly 50 years. However, the future blueprint of our organization focuses on senior living services and amenities KCPM’s infrastructure cannot provide. The purchasing company has years of senior healthcare experience expansive in properties across the country.
We believe Riverbend, an operating subsidiary of The Ensign Group, Inc., is the best choice in taking ownership of KCPM because of Ensign’s commitment to the mission of their team members, their residents and the communities in which they reside and work.
To Our Residents/Families/POAs
This community has been part of the PMMA family for nearly 50 years. We value the residents and their families who rely on us for care and thank you for entrusting that awesome responsibility to us. Because this responsibility is part of our organization’s mission every day, we have chosen to sell this community to Riverbend, an operating subsidiary of The Ensign Group, Inc., who have demonstrated to PMMA they, too, take serious the responsibility of providing sustainable, quality care for seniors.
The new owners are well suited to continue the caring commitment you experience today and have a long history of senior living care. No doubt there will be some changes, but the familiar faces you see every day will remain. On June 27 at 6 p.m., there will be a meeting with residents and families to talk about the change and transition as well as allow for questions and answers.
No doubt there will be some changes to the many familiar faces you see every day. Our organization must reaffirm our mission-driven purpose to ensure we remain nimble enough to adapt as senior living needs change. Although often difficult, we embrace this opportunity to better position our organization for what senior living services will require tomorrow—though we will truly miss the KCPM community.
Please join us for an informational meeting June 27 at 6PM in the Chapel. Refreshments will be served.
To Our Community
In order to remain viable, especially in the world of healthcare and senior living services, organizations must continuously monitor the current and future landscape of their industry to ensure steps are being made to secure sustainability. PMMA is no different and we have been diligent at looking ahead in order to protect our team members, residents and communities who rely on us daily. It is within this framework that PMMA has chosen to sell the Kansas City Presbyterian Manor community to Big Blue Healthcare, Inc. dba Riverbend Post-Acute Rehabilitation, an operating subsidiary of The Ensign Group, Inc., who have demonstrated to PMMA they, too, take serious the responsibility of providing sustainable, quality care for seniors.
Our organization is positioned well to adapt to the evolving landscape of senior living and this change comes with mixed emotions – positive for the future relationship the new owners will have with the community, residents and employees, as well as the future direction of our organization; yet sad in saying goodbye to a member of our family.
Our organization must reaffirm our mission-driven purpose of ensuring we remain nimble enough to adapt as senior living needs change. Although often difficult, we embrace this opportunity to better position our organization for what senior living services will require tomorrow and will truly miss the KCPM community.
