Chris Newport Is First Executive Director for Sinai Residences of Boca Raton
Chris Newport is the first Executive Director of Sinai Residences of Boca Raton, a new Continuing Care Retirement Community being built on the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County campus.
The Sinai Residences community is owned and governed by the Federation CCRC Development LLC Board of Managers, a wholly-owned Federation subsidiary. With more than 70 percent of construction complete, this $250 million state-of-the-art project will feature 237 independent luxury units tailored toward the active senior population of South Florida, as well as suites for assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing care. The independent living apartments are fully reserved with a waiting list.
Newport brings to Sinai Residences 15 years of experience overseeing all areas of senior living. Most recently, Newport was directly responsible for start-up and first years of the Wellbrooke of Wabash campus in Wabash, Indiana. An Indiana native, Newport’s earlier positions took him to Maryland, Pennsylvania, California and Oregon. He holds licensure from the National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB), as well as in several states. Newport is an employee of Life Care Services, the national firm selected by the Sinai Board of Managers to operate the community. Based in Des Moines, Iowa, Life Care Services is a leading manager of senior living communities serving over 30,000 seniors nationwide.
As Executive Director of Sinai Residences, Newport will see that residents receive the highest quality service including fine dining, engaging social, cultural and educational opportunities and state-of the art health and wellness programming. He is currently hiring the upper-level management team. When complete, the community will serve approximately 450 residents with over 225 full and part-time employees.
Like other CCRCs, Sinai Residences will provide varied levels of living to best meet the residents’ needs over time, at a predictable monthly cost. Yet, Newport describes the project as “unlike any other CCRC. I have had many opportunities throughout my career to work with existing and preconstruction senior living projects, so I know that Sinai Residences is special and truly a one of a kind,” says Newport. “The entire story of Sinai Residences through the stages of research, planning, design and financing are all milestones unprecedented in today’s senior care industry. I am truly honored to be a part of this history.”
