Concordia Wins 2015 Business Champion Award | Video

September 22, 2015
+

At Concordia Lutheran Ministries, we’re guided by our mission of caring for people in a Christian environment, and serving those with limited funds to the best of our ability. Somewhere along the line in our 134-year history, we learned a valuable lesson: if we don’t apply sound business practices, we won’t be able to help nearly as many people, for nearly as long. As the old saying goes, “No margin, no mission.”

National Nursing Home Week 2015 - A Letter From the President

May 12, 2015
+

Happy National Nursing Home Week -- and for those Concordia employees reading, Happy Employee Appreciation Week! Each year at Concordia, we take this week as an opportunity to show our staff how much they are appreciated with a special treat each day of the week. Bagels, cookies, sandwiches, veggie trays, a cookout; we even give a cool gift each year (this year, it's a hoodie or fleece)! We value our staff every day, but hey, who doesn't want a good reason to have a cookout?

For the occasion, Concordia President & CEO Keith Frndak wrote a letter to our staff, and we wanted to share it with you all today. Thank you all for your continued support of what we do - care for those in need. Enjoy, and leave a comment here or on our Facebook page if you'd like!

Concordia Residents Share Favorite Memories of Grandparenthood

September 2, 2014
+

At last count, throughout the entire Concordia system, we have roughly 1,900 beds/apartments/suites/villas/rooms for patients and residents to live/recover/thrive/enjoy life. We’re going to estimate that, at any given time, we have… a BOATLOAD of proud grandparents in our ranks! Yeah… that’s a pretty scientific measurement. And that number doesn’t even include all the grandparents we serve in their very own homes through Concordia Visiting Nurses!

So in celebration of National Grandparents Day, which is observed Sunday, September 7, we thought we would ask some of those proud Grams and Paps their favorite moments as grandparents.
