Brentwood, TN (February 20, 2020) — Diversicare Healthcare Services, Inc., a premier provider of long-term care services, announced today that Ms. Rebecca Bodie will be joining the Company in March 2020 as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, taking over the position from former Chief Operating Officer, Ms. Leslie Campbell, who resigned effective March 31, 2020.
Commenting on the announcement, Jay McKnight, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “I am extremely pleased that Becky Bodie will be returning to Diversicare as our COO. Becky was with us from 2013 until 2016, a key time in the Company’s growth, and we are excited to have her rejoining the team. She has extensive experience in our industry and has held key leadership positions in nursing home operations, therapy, compliance, reimbursement, and other related areas of long-term care. Ms. Bodie is an occupational therapist and a licensed nursing home administrator.”
Mr. McKnight continued, “It is with mixed emotions that we announce that Leslie Campbell will be leaving Diversicare next month. Leslie has been an integral part of our Company, a consistent leader of her team, and a great partner to me in my roles as CFO and now CEO. We greatly appreciate the fact that Leslie has continued with us through the conclusion of our government matter – a matter that originated before she or I joined the company. Personally and on behalf of our Board, we thank Leslie for everything she has done for Diversicare and we wish her all the best in her next opportunity.”
Mr. McKnight concluded, “With the phenomenal team we have, Leslie’s commitment to a smooth transition plan, and Becky’s return to the Company, we are confident that we will continue our recent progress.”
