RPP Board Chair — A Woman Who Moves Maryland

The February 2019 issue of Baltimore Magazine (page 129) features Leslie Simmons, RPP’s incoming chair of the Board of Directors, as one of an awesome group of Women Who Move Maryland. Be sure to check out the article to learn more!

After working as a secretary at a construction firm, Leslie Simmons took a job as a hospital technician. One day, the chief of cardiology called her into his office. She was afraid she’d done something wrong, but instead, he said, “I think you’d make a great nurse,” Simmons recalls.

He went on to offer to help pay for her schooling, and her boss, she says, even attended her graduation from Anne Arundel Community College. She went on to earn a backelor’s in Nursing and a master’s in management administration from Notre Dame of Maryland University. Today, as executive vice president at LifeBridge Health, she counts 30-plus years in the health care industry.

Simmons, a fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives, has been recognized multiple times among The Daily Record’s Top 100 Women in Maryland, and was inducted into the publication’s Circle of Excellence in 2018. She was honored as one of The Baltimore Sun’s 25 Women to Watch in 2018.

LifeBridge Health consists of Siani Hospital of Baltimore, Northwest Hospital, Carroll Hospital, and Levindale Hebrew Geriatric Center and Hospital, along with many subsidiaries and affiliated units.

The health care company advocates for preventive services, including wellness and fitness and educational programs. LifeBridge is committed to improving the health of the individuals and communities it serves with compassionate and high-quality care.

The First Reservation Deposit Received!

The very first reservation deposit on a new independent living apartment to be built as part of RPP’s expansion was received this week.

Mr. Arthur Boyd Meyer and Mrs. Margaret Meyer Boyd are the first to make their reservation official for one of the 58 new independent living apartments to be built; several other residents are set to do the same.

This is exciting news for RPP as having a minimum number of new apartments committed to prior to construction is a requirement by the Department of Aging.

 Welcome to Roland Park Place!

Lucretia Wilson-Myers talks about heat safety on Fox45

Roland Park Place’s own Ambulatory Care Center nurse, Lucretia Wilson-Myers was interviewed on the Fox45 morning show. She shared her knowledge on how seniors can stay safe in the summer heat. This is another great example of the resources and expertise available to RPP residents right here on our campus. We are so fortunate to have had Lucretia on staff here at RPP for so many years. Her know-how and professionalism are extraordinary and her personal touch in providing care for each and every resident who visits our on-site clinic is a testament to the level of service that residents can expect at Roland Park Place.
