It is my absolute pleasure to kick off the very first Straight from the Heart: Mission Health’s bi-weekly blog. First, let me introduce myself. I am Stuart Lindeman, President and CEO of Mission Health Communities. I joined Mission in December 2012, and have had the absolute pleasure of growing alongside this exceptional company over the past eight years.

I’ll keep this one short, but if you’re new to Mission Health and who we are, we are leaders in the skilled nursing and long-term care profession with 50 communities under our management. In everything we do, we seek to bring the Mission Experience to life—it’s what we do and how we do it that differentiates us from the competition. With our C.A.R.E.S. values of Character, Attitude, Respect, Excellence, and Service, our communities across eight states are all unique, while retaining that special “Mission” touch. We are also committed to innovating the way we communicate and look forward to reaching new audiences here!

Over the course of the coming year, you can look forward to blogs about staffing during a pandemic, pivoting in the face of rapid change, tips and tools we’ve truly loved, helpful educational materials, and more! If it relates to healthcare, innovation, COVID-19, employee engagement, or heck – maybe even a healthy recipe or two – we’ll talk about it! So if those topics interest you, make sure you bookmark this page.

We’re happy to have you here, and we look forward to adding value to your experience with us.

Sincerely, Stuart
