Charles R. Mooney, United Church Homes’ senior vice president of senior living services and chief operating officer, announced recently that he will retire Dec. 20, 2019, closing a successful 35-year career of changing lives and transforming the lives of older adults. Mooney has been with United Church Homes (UCH) since 2012.
“Chuck has been an integral part of United Church Homes’ vision to transform aging during the past seven years,” says the Rev. Kenneth V. Daniel, president and CEO. “His contributions are many and his impact cannot be overstated.”
In his current role, Mooney is responsible for UCH’s senior living community and health center operations. He also is involved in guiding the strategic direction of the company, including the development of home and community-based services, healthcare system and managed care organization integration, and new service line innovations.
“Chuck is a prime example of a serving leader,” says Michael J. Readinger, president and CEO of the UCC’s Council for Health and Human Service Ministries. “His compassion and leadership inspire everyone he works with. He will be missed, and filling his shoes will be a chore!”
Prior to joining United Church Homes, Mooney served as chief operating officer (1998-2009) and chief administrative officer (2009-2011) of New Jersey’s Springpoint Senior Living, the state’s largest nonprofit multi-site provider of senior housing, health care, and supportive services.
“We will remember Chuck’s good humor, intelligence, work ethic and tireless dedication to furthering our mission,” says Daniel. “He is approachable, supportive, and communicates transparently — rare qualities that build trust and confidence in others. He will be deeply missed, as his impact touched virtually every aspect of United Church Homes’ work in support of those we serve.”
Adds Daniel, “I am grateful for Chuck’s significant contributions in the field of senior living over more than two decades. I congratulate Chuck on his stellar career and wish him God’s blessings as he starts this new life chapter.”
