Governor Perry Announces Golden Living Headquarters Relocation to Dallas-Forth Worth Metroplex

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - March 10, 2011) -  Governor Rick Perry today joined with Golden Living executives in formally announcing the relocation of the healthcare company's headquarters from Fort Smith, Ark., to the Dallas-Forth Worth Metroplex. Starting in April, Golden Living will begin the process of creating more than 100 jobs in the City of Plano through a combination of relocating senior executives from their current offices in seven states and the District of Columbia along with hiring new staff locally.

"Here in Texas, we've worked to create a climate where businesses can thrive and create jobs through our low taxes, reasonable and predictable regulatory environment, fair legal system, and skilled workforce," Gov. Perry said. "Companies like Golden Living are finding that this climate, paired with investments from the Texas Enterprise Fund, have made Texas the best state in the nation to live, work, and raise a family."

"The business environment created by the officials of the State of Texas, the Texas Enterprise Fund, and the City of Plano -- along with their investments -- were key to our decision to locate our new headquarters in Texas," said Neil Kurtz, M.D., President and CEO of Golden Living. "We look forward to actively participating in the State of Texas and City of Plano business communities. We believe their significant resources and talent will enable us to accelerate the growth and success of our company."

"Plano is delighted to have been selected as the new corporate headquarters for Golden Living," said City of Plano Mayor Phil Dyer. "We think Plano is a perfect match for this company. Golden Living is a multi-state family of healthcare companies that are committed to enriching the lives of 60,000 residents and patients, and Plano is a community dedicated to providing a superior environment for its corporate citizens and residents."

Golden Living's new headquarters will consist of approximately 27,000 square feet of office space in the Legacy campus in the City of Plano.

The company's previous headquarters in Fort Smith will become the Golden Living Administrative Center, providing administrative services in support of all of the company's businesses and more than 42,000 employees nationally.
