American Senior Communities has announced more leadership moves after last month’s FBI raids in central Indiana. The company says as a result of federal and internal investigations, it has fired Chief Operating Officer Dan Benson and Chief Financial Officer Roger Werner has resigned. The company fired Chief Executive Officer James Burkhart September 18.
ASC says it has launched an active search to fill the positions.
In a statement, American Senior Communities said:
“ASC’s internal investigation confirmed that the federal investigation does not in any way involve the care provided to residents of any facility serviced by ASC.
ASC is proud of its employees who work hard and embody the company’s commitment to integrity and serving its residents. ASC will not allow the actions of a few individuals to compromise its mission of providing quality care. ASC’s owners, Board of Directors and senior leadership are confident that ASC employees will continue the strong tradition of providing excellent care, which has made ASC a valued and respected provider of senior care in Indiana.
ASC thanks its residents, families and partners for their support. ASC is committed to keeping its values of Compassion, Attentiveness, Relationship, and Excellence as its highest priorities.”
The FBI has not commented on the circumstances surrounding the raids.
