Bringing with her more than two decades of health care experience, Kimberly Edwards has joined Avalon Park Group as its director of health care operations. In addition, Edwards has assumed the top position at Encore at Avalon Park, the company's assisted living facility.
"Bringing in a person with the background and knowledge of this industry, such as Kim, brings our health care division into an entirely different level," says Beat Kahli, CEO, Avalon Park Group. "Over the next few years, we'll be starting many new initiatives that are ground breaking in this industry and there is no better person than Kim to lead our efforts."
Edwards is a licensed nursing home administrator and comes to Avalon Park Group with more than 25 years of long-term care experience, managing assisted living communities, skilled nursing facilities and continuing care retirement communities. She last worked at the Cameron Group as director of business development.
She earned her undergraduate degree from Gustavus Adolphus College in Minnesota and an MBA from Florida Institute of Technology.
"Very few companies are taking on health care in a manner such as Avalon Park Group and I'm proud to be a part of their long-term plans," Edwards says. "No place else looks at the entire life of our citizens, working to provide healthy initiatives for younger people and immersive care for our seniors. Our goal is to make Avalon Park Group a model for how businesses can be a part of caring for our population in the best manner possible."
