SALISBURY — Lutheran Services Carolinas (LSC) recently announced a nonprofit partnership with Aston Park Health Care Center to serve seniors in Asheville. Aston Park has served the Asheville area for over 42 years.
Executive director Marsha McClure, who has more than four decades at Aston Park, will continue to lead the centre. “We are delighted with this partnership and look forward to strengthening Aston Park and LSC to serve in the future,” said McClure.
The partnership will include working together to support Aston Park’s dedicated team, ameliorate workforce issues, provide operational support and continue to explore Aston Park’s dream of adding apartments for the elderly on the campus.
“I have known and respected Marsha McClure and Aston Park for over 30 years,” said LSC chairman Ted Goins. “It is an honor to partner with such a strong nonprofit to serve the Asheville/Buncombe area for years to come.”
Aston Park is one of the few remaining nonprofit healthcare providers in western North Carolina.
Aston Park was founded as a non-profit community organization in Asheville in 1980 and has 120 skilled nursing beds and 19 assisted living beds. Aston Park provides rehabilitation, long-term care and memory care services to its residents and has been a strong community partner since its inception.
LSC was established in 1960 as a nonprofit organization and has grown to serve North Carolina residents and families with eight nursing homes, four senior living communities, senior housing low-income, PACE, home care and adult day services. LSC’s child and family programs are offered in both Carolinas and include foster care, refugee resettlement, disaster relief, supportive living, and more. LSC is a $140 million health and human services organization with more than 1,800 teammates. The closest LSC services to Aston Park are a seniors’ community in Arden, Trinity View, and a New Americans (refugee resettlement) program office in Asheville.
