Lutheran services remains largest nonprofit provider of senior services in NC

SALISBURY — Lutheran Services Carolinas has again made the LeadingAge Ziegler 200 list. Published annually by LeadingAge and Ziegler Capital Markets Group, the list identifies the largest providers of nonprofit aging services in the nation.

Lutheran Services Carolinas came in at No. 60 of the largest multisite senior living organizations, determined by total senior living units, in the 2019 report, up from its ranking of 63 last year.

The agency remains the largest in the state in the top 200. In addition, it moved up two spots to No. 32 in the category of nonprofit multisite senior living organizations ranked by nursing care beds.

LeadingAge and Ziegler generate the list to identify the characteristics of growing health care systems and to study trends in nonprofit senior living.

In North Carolina, Lutheran Services Carolinas operates senior living communities in Salisbury (Trinity Oaks); Albemarle (Trinity Place); Winston-Salem (Trinity Glen); Hickory (Trinity Ridge and Trinity Village); Clemmons (Trinity Elms); Arden (Trinity View); and Wilmington (Trinity Grove).

“LSC is humbled to now be No. 60 and the largest in the Carolinas,” said Ted Goins, president and CEO of Lutheran Services Carolinas. “But more significant than any ranking is continued growth in the number of lives touched by LSC every day.”

With more than 6,000 members and partners, LeadingAge is the nation’s largest association of not-for-profit aging service providers, with a focus on education, advocacy and applied research. Ziegler is the leading underwriter of tax-exempt and nonprofit financing in the U.S.

In addition to its services and living options for seniors, Lutheran Services Carolinas, based in Salisbury, provides foster care, adoption, veterans services, mental health services, refugee resettlement services, disaster response and residential care for people with disabilities in both North Carolina and South Carolina.
