transition-2BOISE, Idaho, Jan. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Cascadia Healthcare, LLC today announced that it has acquired the operations of three Skilled Nursing Facilities. Libby Care of Cascadia, a 101-bed skilled nursing facility located in Libby, Montana, Coeur D’Alene Health and Rehabilitation of Cascadia, a 117-bed skilled nursing facility located in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho, and Clearwater Health and Rehabilitation of Cascadia, a 60-bed skilled nursing facility located in Orofino, Idaho.  Cascadia Healthcare, via wholly owned subsidiaries, has entered into a triple-net leasing arrangement for the Facilities with the real estate owner of the property. Cascadia has assumed operations effective January 1, 2017.

These acquisitions are expected to materially add to Cascadia’s cash flow, while offering significant potential for growth.

“We are excited about these strategic acquisitions that allow us to expand our growing footprint into the Northern Idaho and Western Montana markets, said Owen Hammond, Cascadia’s President and Chief Executive Officer. Hammond also noted that, “Cascadia is pleased that our disciplined growth plan allowed us the opportunity to acquire these Facilities and deliver on Cascadia’s commitment to being a Force for Good to our residents, Employees, and the communities that we serve.”

Doug Bodily, Cascadia’s Chief Operations Officer, added, “We have long enjoyed a great relationship with Idaho’s Department of Health and are enthusiastic to enter the Montana market with the intent to replicate that great relationship.”

In addition to these acquisitions, Cascadia continues its development of two state of the art 99-bed Transitional Care Facilities in Nampa and Boise, Idaho, with both expected to commence operations in the latter half of 2017.

Great Partnerships are the Secret Sauce!

By | Cascadia Healthcare, Culture

Thank you to all of our partners!

 

When we started Cascadia in 2015, we knew that one of the most important things we could do to ensure our success would be to partner with people that shared our values and commitment to the same core principles that we do. This is not an easy task, as there are many potential partners out there that are great at what they do. We sought to partner with people that not only do great work, but those companies that were interested in building long-lasting real and personal relationships. These relationships are rare, and if you are lucky, you might come across only a few partnerships that demonstrate this trait in your career.

This past year has been a whirlwind of activity full of anxiety, hope, and a sincere appreciation for these remarkable partnerships. As big as this industry appears from the outside, the Healthcare Industry is a small and intimate group of caretakers, service providers, and talented leaders. I believe there is a shared bond among all those that choose to serve in this delicate and often challenging industry. The common thread that weaves us together is that of selfless service. It can be seen directly with our residents and patients, our staff, or in other ways within the communities that we serve. We are all dedicated to this industry and the longevity of each of the crafts that we practice.

Not every company is perfect. Execution can be tricky and there are many variables that can hinder our ability to do more. Acknowledging not every company is perfect, including our own, I wanted to specifically thank a few partnerships out of the many that have helped us in extraordinary ways this past year.

Each of these partners have shown the unique strength to personalize their services for Cascadia in a real and meaningful way specific to our needs in 2016.

We are immensely grateful for your leadership, support, and partnership as we continue to grow our company. Thank you from everyone at Cascadia!

Cascadia Celebrates Family – Happy Thanksgiving!

By | Cascadia Healthcare

Happy Thanksgiving - Cascadia

Fall is my favorite time of year. The leaves change, the weather cools down, and there is a palpable excitement in the air as people eagerly anticipate spending time with family and friends for the holidays. Whether it is the maturity of getting older or the profound respect and understanding that comes from being vulnerable and new, as we are at Cascadia, I feel even more grateful than ever this year.

 

At Cascadia we believe in families. We believe that, at its core, building strong families within our facilities and in our homes, is one of our biggest and most important accomplishments. Without trust, compassion and patience within these units, we are not allowed the opportunity to be the extraordinary people we want to become and deliver the outcomes we strive for. Hiring the right people and empowering them to own their environments allows for innovation, creativity and accountability. All of these things, drilled down to their base, engender extraordinary outcomes in all areas.

 

All of the amazing people we serve in our facilities have very unique and colorful life stories. Honoring those experiences and the uniqueness of each of them is important to us. We believe in celebration- whether it is the life stories that our residents continue to write or the small accomplishments our team does to enhance the lives of the ones we are entrusted to serve, we passionately celebrate all of them.  The journey of life comes with many challenges and setbacks, but we see the joy in the small things, the simple gestures, the moments of victory and the elation of even the slightest progress. We celebrate life and all that comes with it.

 

As I reflect upon the past year and the families we have started to build in our facilities, home office and with our colleagues, we celebrate the opportunity to serve this great industry and work with amazing individuals. To all of those who have played a small and or significant role in our growth this past year, I raise a glass of sparkling cider to you and say from everyone at Cascadia – Thank you! We look forward to 2017 with anticipation for the new lives we will touch and the new relationships that will be formed. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone, may you celebrate joy and happiness surrounded by family and friends!
