Lutheran Services names new chief operating officer

Lutheran Services for the Aging (LSA) has recently named Patrick J. Foley chief operating officer (COO) for the statewide health-care organization. As COO, Foley will oversee the operation of LSA’s nursing homes, retirement communities, assisted living residences and adult day services including Salisbury’s Trinity Oaks, Lutheran Home at Trinity Oaks and Abundant Living Adult Day Services.
“Pat is a highly regarded and well respected nursing home administrator who comes to us with a history of excellence,” said LSA President Ted W. Goins Jr. “We are truly fortunate that he has chosen to join LSA and we believe he has the critical leadership skills needed to support the organization.”
Foley, a graduate of Pennsylvania State University with a master of science in administrative and therapeutic parks and recreation, brings more than 25 years of long-term care experience to the COO position, including 23 years as a nursing home administrator.
Of his arrival at LSA he said, “Through my work as an administrator here in North Carolina, I got to know a number of people who are part of the LSA organization. I am very excited to now have the opportunity to work with them and to return to the not-for-profit sector.”
Originally from Hamilton Township, N.J., Foley and his wife, Patricia, have been Salisbury residents for 19 years.
