Community First Solutions Expands Regional Senior Living Footprint with Major Acquisition
HAMILTON, OH– Community First Solutions has acquired Anthology of Mason from Anthology Senior Living, and will add the Mason based assisted living and memory care facility to its not-for-profit network. The acquisition expands Community First’s senior living portfolio, and will provide localized leadership and a long-term commitment to the residents and staff of Anthology of Mason, as well as the Mason/Deerfield Township community.

“Joining a local organization with a strong reputation for outstanding care, sound business practices and solid financial position will positively impact our team, and our residents. Having greater access to local support will allow our leadership team to focus more time on our daily operations,” states Courtney Fultz, Executive Director of Anthology of Mason.

Community First’s senior living brands focus on lifestyle and quality of care. As part of the acquisition, Anthology of Mason has been renamed Montage Mason, to complement the organizations’ existing brands and reflect the vibrant, active lifestyle and high quality care that residents expect at this community.

“We are excited about welcoming the Montage Mason residents and staff to our Community First family,” says Brett Kirkpatrick, President & CEO of Community First Solutions. “As a growth focused organization, we are excited about the opportunity to expand our geographic footprint and provide additional services to Warren County residents. The Mason/Deerfield Township area is a vibrant community with great schools and neighborhoods. While it expands our market area, the location is also close enough to our regional headquarters to allow our leadership team to actively support the operations, leveraging efficiencies and collaborative best practices.”

As healthcare gets more complex, growth is critical to success and sustainability,” states Kirkpatrick. “Community First is focused on continuing to expand our mission through the pursuit of strategic partnerships, joint ventures and acquisitions that allow us to leverage efficiencies, diversify revenue and extend the continuum of health and wellness services we offer our communities.”

Established in 1918, Community First Solutions is headquartered in Hamilton, Ohio. They operate Berkeley Square and Westover - two top-rated Continued Care Retirement Communities - and Jamestowne, a 5-Star post-acute care facility. Berkeley Square and Westover were recently awarded Best Assisted Living Facilities in Butler County, Jamestowne was recently recognized for Best Short Term Rehabilitation by US News & World Report, and Community First Solutions was recognized as the Best Place to Work in Butler County. While their deepest roots are in the senior living industry, as an organization focused on meeting a diverse scope of health and wellness needs, Community First also provides behavioral health services, pharmacy services, and community based supports for older adults in Southwestern Ohio.

Community First Solutions has been awarded an A- Fitch Rating for the past two consecutive years. The assignment of the 'A-' rating primarily reflects Community First‘s scale and service diversity, recent affiliations and strong management practices. The addition of Montage Mason increases Community First’s number of senior living residents to 510, total number of regional employees to 610, and Annual Operating budget to $59 Million.
