Mark McKenzie, President

Prior to joining SCC, Mark was a Division President for a F.C.C. healthcare consulting firm, where he oversaw the management and business operations of skilled nursing and hospice care facilities in six states with over 350 million in annual sales. He also has been a Regional Vice President in charge of operations for a Texas-based firm with facilities in three states, as well as a District Director of operations for a national company with $150 million in annual revenue.

“This is not your grandmother’s nursing home,” is how Mark likes to describe his philosophy for the industry. He believes that a new generation of consumers is looking for a level of service and comfort similar to what they find in hotels and inns. That means a pleasing, vibrant environment and amenities like concierge service, wireless Internet access, culinary experiences, convenient transportation and recreational choices.

As a healthcare executive, Mark has helped provide nursing home and assisted living care to thousands of people. He also has been on the opposite side, helping his parents make decisions about his grandparents’ care and personally overseeing the care for another close family member. Those experiences, he says, helped put many things into perspective for him and made him realize how often the smallest things could make the biggest difference to a loved one’s quality of life.
