The Sisters of Charity founded Bayley in 1990 in response to community need for a nonprofit retirement and wellness community on Cincinnati’s westside. Almost immediately, we began expanding our campus and programming to address increased demand to meet needs of adults and seniors, whether they required skilled nursing care or sought to retain their independence in a supportive environment filled with fellowship.
The Sisters of Charity have served as our sponsor since our founding, overseeing and preserving our canonical relationship with the Catholic Church. Today, the Sisters of Charity are empowering us to reimagine our sponsorship future as they embrace new callings and the changing realities of having fewer Sisters to serve on our board to provide oversight and governance – important requisites of sponsorship.
A sponsorship evolution is in our future; the changes it may entail will not change who we are. Bayley’s day-to-day operations and solid financial standing will remain unchanged. Our commitment to our region’s older adults and to continually elevating the services and campus resources we provide remain core to Bayley’s offering. And, importantly, our convictions, values and intentions to maintain our Catholic identity are unwavering.
The Sisters of Charity have positioned us for success, establishing proficient lay leadership and strong financial standing and independence. While our relationship with the Sisters is evolving, they will continue to be our champions and our inspiration. Bayley is positioned to thrive as we stand on the shoulders of the Sisters who came before us.
We are in the early stages of our journey. Our Board of Directors has formed a Sponsorship Transition Task Force. Our highly engaged Board will be overseeing this exciting path forward. We will benefit from having the Sisters of Charity by our side, maintaining thoughtful and diligent stewardship as we determine our sponsorship future with prayer and careful consideration. We have no firm deadlines against which we’re working; however, we are striving to have a sponsorship path identified in the coming year.
We thank the Sisters of Charity, the families we serve and our Bayley team and Board leadership for being valued partners in fulfilling our mission.
