With 25 years of leadership to Arbutus Park Retirement Community, Administrator Rick Wilson has announced his upcoming retirement, effective June 30, 2023. Under his leadership, the Arbutus Park Manor has seen a number of expansions and new construction projects, improvements, and a significant capital campaign. Rick also provided leadership to the growth of our independent living campus with ‘Arbutus at Parker Ridge.’ During these past 25 years, Rick has expertly navigated an ever-changing landscape of long-term care and senior living. Most recently, Rick and his leadership team effectively navigated the unprecedented pandemic, which has forever changed the industry. Effective July 1, Mr. Wilson will be ‘passing the torch’ to current Assistant Administrator Chad Kamler. The staff, residents, and families of our community wish to say ‘thank you Rick’ for your steadfast faith, care, compassion, and much needed sense of humor. Your leadership has been instrumental in keeping APRC operating as one of the few remaining independent, faith-based, non-profit care communities. Your guidance has positioned our community for another 50 years!
