A Note from Joe - Continued

Additional points

Joe Hoffman, ChairIt's a grand time to be involved with Charles E. Smith Life Communities; we are recognized in so many different contexts, locally and nationally, as compassionate providers and leaders in the senior housing and care community. A recently released publication ranks CESLC as the third largest single-site non-profit organization of its type in the entire country! The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services give CESLC its highest 5-Star rating (only 25% of similar organizations achieve this distinction). And, our IT Department earned an Excellence in Technology Award for their development of computer games designed to promote memory care.

Our local community is supporting CESLC by turning out by the hundreds to attend events such as the community-oriented Home Run, the President's Circle Dinner at the National Portrait Gallery, and appearances by cartoonist Roz Chast at VisArts in Rockville and sports journalist Michael Wilbon at Woodmont Country Club.

Supporters have seen our new video, We Are Blessed, highlighting our compassionate care, world-class facilities and professional leadership and community involvement. I've seen first-hand the admiration and respect that leaders of other Jewish nursing homes express for Warren and the rest of our senior management. And the President and CEO of The Harry and Jeannette Weinberg Foundation, a $2 billion charity that has supported CESLC for nearly 20 years, recently said to me that "CESLC is doing amazing things."

We are firing on all cylinders and delivering far and wide the message that we are not just an "old age home," and the success we are achieving demonstrates that that message is resonating. I'm sure you share my pride in being affiliated with CESLC, and I appreciate you joining me in being a passionate spokesperson and ambassador in our community. We've achieved so much, but yet there is still more for us to conquer.
