A Welcome from Our CEO

Greetings from Dan Fagin

Welcome to Cedar Village, and thank you for your interest in our community. We are a team of more than 400 of the most dedicated men and women in the senior services industry. Together, we are committed to building the premier residential housing, skilled nursing and community-based healthcare organization in Greater Cincinnati, specializing in serving people who are 50 and better.

Cedar Village is a place many people call home. Some are just here for a short stay, and others for many, many years. “Hamish” is a word that really describes us. It is a Yiddish word that means cozy, warm, comfortable. Some similar communities have the feel of a high end resort—a feeling like you are on vacation. We like to say that Cedar Village feels like the place you are excited to come home to after you’ve been away. A place where the staff knows your name and the residents are life-long friends. A place where you’d feel just as comfortable in a pair of sweatpants or shorts as you would in a jacket and tie.

Our roots extend back well over 100 years, when the Glen Manor Home for the Aged opened in 1883 and with the opening of the Orthodox Jewish Home in 1906. When these organizations merged in 1997 to create Cedar Village, we made the commitment to be an organization that serves individuals of all faiths, but one that is guided by core Jewish values. Our focus on these values, including a deep commitment to caring for seniors, can be observed in the work we do every day.

Cedar Village is equally dedicated to creating an environment in which talented, caring individuals want to work. We are building a culture that demonstrates our appreciation for the hard work of our staff through a program of fair wages and comprehensive benefits. One that invests in the continuing professional development of each and every individual on our team. And a culture in which we care about each other, basing our decisions on not only what is best for each of us individually, but on how our actions affect our co-workers. We believe staff who are engaged in their work provide better care for our residents and make better colleagues.

The healthcare sector is one of the most dynamic in the world. The need to modify and adapt is continuous. At Cedar Village, we appreciate this opportunity as we believe it brings out the best in us, helping us strive further to provide our residents with life enriching programs and services at all times. We are motivated to remain a market leader, setting the standard for care in our industry. So, whether you are future resident, family member, employee or donor, we are glad you visited. Guests are always welcome at our facility, and encouraged to call us 1-513-754-3100 to arrange a tour or if there are questions we can answer. Please re-visit our web site on a regular basis. It is my hope that the information provided here will become a valuable resource in your quest to make the best healthcare and senior living decisions for you and your loved ones.

Our commitment to excellence continues to strengthen as we enter our third decade of service to the community. Each step we take advances Cedar Village as one of the region’s premier communities serving the needs of seniors. However, we know that our best advocate as we strive toward future achievements is you; and this site is, we hope, an effective means of communicating the vision and plans that will take us there.
