A longtime friend shows Jesse and Richard The Evergreen Hotel in Vancouver, Washington as a possible acquisition. When the bank denies their idea to turn the property into an office building, an alternative idea is presented: senior housing. The Evergreen Inn—Agemark’s first community—is born.
Agemark expands to the Midwest by purchasing a group of properties from another senior housing provider. In the process, the team meets Marty Hug and Marcia Houchin who today are CEO and VP of Life Enrichment, respectively.
Seeing an increased need for high-quality, specialized Memory Care, we open our first CountryHouse, a stand-alone Memory Care community. Today, thirteen CountryHouse communities serve hundreds of seniors across the country.
Michael Pittore spearheads new partnerships with other like-minded companies and investors. As a part-owner and managing entity, we spread our vision of senior living to even more communities across the country.
COVID-19 hits senior care hard. We take safety seriously and make early investments in PPE, testing and much more. During one of the most trying times we’ve faced, we developed a refreshed appreciation for our wonderful staff and leaders in our communities—these folks are true heroes.
Our newest community, Symphony Pointe, will open in West Omaha, Nebraska, in Summer 2023. With more growth on the horizon, we look to continuously improve and put ourselves in a position to serve seniors for the foreseeable future.
