GREENVILLE – After spending time as a skilled nursing facility administrator in Pennsylvania, Nick Anderson returned home in April to assume the same position with Trilogy Health Services at the Village Green Healthcare Center in Greenville in April.
Anderson was born and raised in Greenville and furthered his education at Ohio University. Upon graduation he took a job as an assistant administrator with a facility in Pennsylvania and eventually earned his administrator’s credentials.
The 2006 Greenville High School graduate attributes his relationship to older adults while growing up as his reason for pursuing this chosen career. He pointed out older adults need an advocate and he is hoping to make a positive impact.
His goal for the Village Green is to continue making it a great facility. While some people in his position guide their decisions by the company’s bottom line, Anderson is making his first priority the residents and staff. “If you take care of the residents and staff the bottom line will take care of itself,” he said.
“I got into it (career) to make an impact on lives,” said Anderson. He noted he took the position with Trilogy because their core values match up with his. He believes The Village Green is much more than a healthcare facility. “We are selling ‘home,’” he said. He wants the staff and residents to feel like a family and go beyond the walls of the facility. “Our older residents should be a resource for the community,” he said.
Anderson is excited about the new facility being built at the corner of Russ Road and State Route 121 in Greenville. In addition to 51 skilled nursing beds, the facility will also offer 38 assisted living beds with 14 of those being dedicated to memory care residents. The new facility is expected to open this fall.
