Dr. Herbert E “Chip” Bowling was President and CEO of Richfield for 18 years beginning in 1985. His mission was to make Richfield the finest healthcare facility around. He built a strong team of leaders and staff who he still remembers by name.
A new era of growth began during his tenure as they replaced the old Oaks facility with the T. Stuart Payne building. One of his proudest moments was when the professional building was named after him.
A family atmosphere, where the residents came first, was important to Chip. He believes the current CEO, Cherie Grisso, has carried on this mission to make sure Richfield Living is the place people want to live, and where employees want to work.
I personally wanted everyone treated as if this was their Mom, or Dad, or Grandma or Grandad here at Richfield. If you look around, you see the beautiful new buildings, you talk, as I have, to the residents and the patients, and they are all excited about what’s going on. This is why I still support Richfield, not only from a verbal standpoint, but from a financial standpoint.
