Concordia of the South Hills Celebrates Five Years of Being in the Concordia Family (Photos)

October 28, 2014

Five years, in the world we live in today, is a pretty significant span of time. In five years, you might pay off a car loan from start to finish, you could complete a bachelor's degree, and you'll likely go through 2.5 smartphones…

Since Concordia of the South Hills joined the Concordia family five years ago, we’ve seen a good bit of activity there as well:

  • A 3,000 sq. ft., two-story Health Center therapy expansion was completed in May 2012
  • Ground was broken for a 2,100 sq. ft. expansion to the current Multi-Purpose Room
  • The Concordia of the South Hills Caring Fund was introduced for charitable care
  • An annual fundraiser was put into action to benefit the Caring Fund
  • Activities and our Christian presence have been expanded
  • Occupancy is the highest it has ever been at the facility

Not bad for half a decade, ay?

On Friday, Oct. 24, during the weekly happy hour at the building, staff and residents celebrated the five-year anniversary of Concordia of the South Hills being a part of the Concordia family. The event included a band, a few speakers and recognition of the employees who have been with Concordia the entire time - Diane Berlingeri, Sarah Eckert, Nancy Hammel, Jean Ragozzino, Ina Silver and Deb Weiss.

And since we love tradition at Concordia, we even bought a Ficus Tree for the occasion – after all, wood is the traditional gift for five-year anniversaries.

Concordia Lutheran Ministries acquired the former Covenant at South Hills on October 26, 2009. The community consists of 126 one- and two-bedroom independent living apartments, 48 personal care, 12 memory-support, and 46 skilled nursing beds.
