MARION, Ohio (December 12, 2019) – United Church Homes announced that Teresa “Terry” Spitznagel, BSSW, LSW, MHA, will join the organization Feb. 10 as chief growth officer, a newly created position that replaces the chief operating officer role at UCH. Spitznagel will report to Rev. Dr. Kenneth Daniel, president and CEO, and have responsibility for all UCH senior living and affordable housing operations. In addition, she will lead efforts to grow existing and new lines of business for the nonprofit senior living provider.

Terry Spitznagel

Spitznagel has over 25 years of experience in healthcare operation, including senior living, hospital and post-acute care, hospice, affordable housing and home and community-based services.

Since 2000, she has worked for National Church Residences in roles of increasing responsibility.

As the senior vice president of senior living, Spitznagel was responsible for overseeing operations of that organization’s skilled nursing and assisted living communities, HUD Affordable Assisted Living (ACLP) communities and independent living communities. She recently contributed to the development of a senior living middle market community program, oversaw managed care contracts and identified new business opportunities with accountable care organizations and healthcare systems.

Previously, Spitznagel was senior vice president of home and community services, and served as vice president of home and community services and, separately, social support services. Before joining National Church Residences, she held operations roles at Mercy Medical Center in Springfield, Ohio, and Mount Carmel Health System in Columbus, Ohio.

“United Church Homes has been on a strategic growth trajectory in recent years,” said Daniel. “We’ve taken significant steps to increase our independent and assisted living options through new construction and acquisition and to form strategic partnerships that will help us better serve older adults.

“Terry brings valuable experience in many areas that are important to our business, particularly in creating alliances and driving growth that is necessary to continue our mission of serving more older adults.”

Spitznagel, who has worked with United Church Homes in her current role and through several industry collaborations with LeadingAge Ohio, said she is thrilled to join UCH.

“The senior living industry is changing rapidly,” Spitznagel said. “UCH has a solid strategic plan for how it will adapt and thrive in this environment and I’m energized by the opportunity to be a catalyst for moving that plan from vision to reality.”

United Church Homes is the eighth largest provider of managed senior living and affordable housing in the U.S. and the 57th largest multisite, nonprofit senior living organization, according to the LeadingAge Ziegler 200 ranking, released in November.
