New Branding for Franciscan Living Communities Announced


Franciscan Living Communities long-term care facilities are being rebranded as part of CHI Living Communities, a national business of Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI). Sylvania Franciscan Health became part of CHI in 2014. CHI Living Communities provides comprehensive care in a variety of living options, including independent and assisted living, skilled nursing, memory care and rehabilitation services. Two former Franciscan Living Communities leaders are guiding CHI Living Communities: Rick Ryan is President/CEO and Wendy Dolyk is Chief Operating Officer.

“The new branding is our voice. Our new mark symbolizes the seamless integration of CHI and CHI Living Communities ignited with passion around one common mission to create healthier and more vibrant living communities. When we say ‘home is here, we mean it,” said Ryan.

The Franciscan Living Communities will keep their name along with the CHI Living Communities brand. They include:

  • Leonard, Centerville, Ohio
  • Madonna Manor, Villa Hills, Kentucky
  • Providence Care Centers, Sandusky, Ohio
  • Franciscan Care Center, Toledo, Ohio
  • Clare Commons, Perrysburg, Ohio

They join other CHI Living Communities, Bishop Drumm in Iowa and four Colorado-based facilities: The Gardens at St. Elizabeth, Medalion Retirement Community, Namasté Alzheimer Center and The Villas at Sunny Acres. In total, CHI Living Communities employ approximately 1,900 staff and care for 2,600 residents.

Over time, Franciscan Living Communities will be rebranded as part of CHI Living Communities with signage, literature and stationery products. Check out the new CHI Living Communities website - www.homeishere.org. A new magazine for the organization, here, was released.
