United Church Homes to Acquire Harmar Place and Glenwood Retirement Community

MARION (Ohio) – United Church Homes, a faith-based nonprofit senior living services provider based in Marion, Ohio, today announced that it is acquiring two senior living communities in Marietta from the Memorial Health System. The effective date is July 1.

The two communities being acquired are Harmar Place Rehabilitation and Extended Care, an 86-bed skilled nursing facility located on Harmar Drive in Marietta, and Glenwood Retirement Community, a senior residential community featuring approximately 122 units providing independent living, assisted living and residential living services, located on 70 acres at 200 Timberline Drive in Marietta.

The acquisition is a key element of United Church Homes’ strategic efforts to expand its ministry in the State of Ohio. The organization already operates six other continuing care retirement communities in Ohio – serving residents in Canal Fulton, Upper Sandusky, Jackson, Sandusky, Fairborn and Beavercreek – as well as a dozen affordable senior housing communities located throughout the state.

“We are very excited about adding Harmar Place and Glenwood Retirement Community to our family,” said Rev. Kenneth Daniel, president and CEO of United Church Homes. “We’ve worked closely with the Memorial Health System over the past year on this initiative, and believe there is a strong cultural alignment of vision, mission and core values between our organizations. We’re looking forward to continuing to provide quality senior living services for the residents of Marietta and the surrounding area.”

A reception to introduce United Church Homes to the Marietta community is scheduled for Thursday, July 30, from 3 pm to 4:30 pm at Glenwood Retirement Community.

United Church Homes’ ministry serves more than 4,000 residents living in 66 senior housing and healthcare communities in 13 states and two Native American senior housing communities. Founded in 1916, United Church Homes will mark its centennial celebration in July 2016 in Columbus, Ohio.
