Legacy Terrace Chooses Kathy Thompson as New Director of Nursing
Kathy Thompson has been named the new Director of Nursing at the Legacy Terrace (www.legacyretirement.com), located at 5700 Fremont in the Havelock neighborhood.
Thompson became an LPN in 1993 and received her Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Management from Bellevue in 2009 and her Assisted Living Administrator License in 2010. Because she has a love of learning and a desire to improve, Thompson returned to school and became a Registered Nurse after receiving her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from Union College in 2016.
Thompson has worked with the geriatric population since 1989, when she started as a Nursing Assistant. Since then she has worked in Long Term Care, Acute Care, a physician office and Assisted Living. “One of the reasons Kathy stood out as a candidate to us was her global knowledge of nursing and her great interest and history in caring for the 55+ age group which we serve,” said Barb Scott, Legacy Retirement Communities’ Clinical Director.
“I am thrilled to be working with the Legacy Family,” Thompson stated. “It’s a blessing to work for a local, family-owned company that strives to do its best for seniors. I hope to continue to help each staff member understand the value in each of their roles and build lifelong relationships with the residents and their families.”
