Receiving Silver designations are Ohio Living Home Health & Hospice operations in greater Akron, greater Dayton, greater Toledo and greater Youngstown. Receiving Bronze designations are Ohio Living Dorothy Love (Sidney), Ohio Living Mount Pleasant (Monroe), and Ohio Living Home Health & Hospice in greater Cincinnati.


“Our 3,200 teammates consistently tell us that our culture is the feeling of family,” says Ohio Living CEO Laurence C. Gumina. “We hire team members with a passion for bringing their best to work each day, and we are committed to creating an environment where they will thrive.” 


The LeadingAge Ohio Employer of Choice recognition program requires applicants to have a 3-star or better rating on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Five-Star Quality Rating System, and an occupancy rate of 80% or higher for at least one year.
