Covenant Living Communities and Services, a not-for-profit, faith-based senior living organization headquartered in Skokie, has entered into an affiliation agreement with Three Crowns Park in Evanston.
Under the agreement Three Crowns will become part of the Covenant Living organization, which will assume overall management and operations of Three Crowns, with shared governance and leadership, upon closing anticipated for July 1.
Three Crowns Park, at 2323 McDaniel Ave., is a seven-acre senior living community established more than 125 years ago. It is home to 150 residents with independent living, assisted living, assisted living memory care and skilled nursing.
The two organizations “have a shared mission and values, along with a unique common background of being established by Swedish immigrants in the Chicago area more than a century ago,” said Terri Cunliffe, president and CEO of Covenant Living. “This affiliation broadens our presence in this market area and continues our commitment to serving older adults in an environment that fosters engaging and active lifestyles.”
Cunliffe says the affiliation will provide Three Crowns additional strength and access to resources for operational efficiencies, management expertise and capital improvements.
Covenant Living is among the 10 largest not-for-profit senior housing and service providers in the nation with 17 communities in nine states serving 5,500 residents. In Illinois, it operates communities in Chicago, Northbrook, Carol Stream and Batavia.
“We are excited for an even brighter future by becoming part of the Covenant Living family through this affiliation,” said Phil Hemmer, Three Crowns Park CEO. “It is a well-respected and progressive organization that values a culture of innovation and embraces a shared vision. This affiliation will only benefit our residents, their families and our employees.”
