style life plan community offering best-in-class independent living, assisted living, memory care and Medicare-
certified skilled nursing on a beautiful 61-acre campus in Stone Mountain, Georgia. As such, he will be responsible
for daily operations of the skilled nursing facility (SNF) at the community’s Pebblebrook healthcare facility,
including managing the patient care experience for members and their families, ensuring compliance with medical
and legal regulations as well as internal policies and procedures, and managing health records.

of healthcare administrator,” said Andy Isakson, founder and managing partner at Isakson Living which developed

thrilled to see what he accomplishes at Pebblebrook.”

care and skilled nursing households. The emphasis is on caring for the needs of the whole person, not just clinical
care. Households are designed to provide both lifestyle and supportive services, including social programming,
health services and a healthy diet prepared by personal chefs. A dedicated health services team supports the
households including physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists and a full-time in-house doctor
specializing in geriatric medicine.
“The relationship-based household model of care that is at the heart of Pebblebrook’s operations provides a solid
foundation to ensure the highest level of care to our members,” said Gooden. “The dedication of the Park Springs
staff to our members was evident from the day that I arrived, and I look forward to collaborating with the team to
constantly improve upon the care and daily interactions with our members and their families.”

including recently directing the daily operations for day-to-day operation of a 163-bed facility with over 90
associates involving Medicare and Medicaid regulations. He received a bachelor of science in healthcare
management from Florida A&M University and an MBA in finance from Strayer University. He is a licensed nursing
