By October 7, 2022No Comments

GlenFlora and Lutheran Services Carolinas (LSC) recently announced a strong nonprofit partnership to continue to serve Lumberton’s seniors. GlenFlora’s legacy in the Lumberton area, along with LSC’s position as the largest nonprofit skilled nursing provider in the state, combine to continue to provide the seniors of Robeson County high-quality care. GlenFlora has served the Lumberton area for over 70 years, and with this partnership, LSC and GlenFlora look forward to continuing to serve for many years to come.

Executive Director Austin Locklear, who has devoted years to the community and its residents, will continue to lead GlenFlora.  “We are excited about this partnership and look forward to strengthening GlenFlora and LSC to serve in the future,” said Locklear.

The partnership will include collaborating to support GlenFlora’s dedicated team, improve workforce issues, and provide operational support. Two of the existing members of the Board of Directors, Dr. John Rozier and Dr. Cherry Beasley, will continue to serve on the board alongside LSC representatives.

“It is an honor to partner with such a strong nonprofit to serve the Lumberton area for years to come,” said LSC President Ted Goins.

GlenFlora was founded in 1952 as the NC Cancer Institute and changed its name in 1999 and currently provides skilled nursing care, assisted living, and in-patient and out-patient rehabilitation.

LSC was created in 1960 as a nonprofit organization and has grown to serve the residents and families of North Carolina with eight nursing homes, four senior living communities, low-income senior housing, PACE, home care, and adult day services. LSC’s child and family programs serve across both Carolinas, and include foster care, refugee resettlement, disaster relief, group homes, and more. LSC is a $140M health and human services organization with over 1,800 teammates.
