Press Release

Kathy and Jim Dye to Retire from Monarch Healthcare Management

 Monarch Healthcare Management announces the retirement celebration of Kathy and Jim Dye on April 28th, 2021

 Kathy joined the team at Hillcrest Rehabilitation Center 16 years ago as Therapeutic Recreation Director.  Her devoted service to residents and families has been invaluable. Kathy excelled in her role, developing activities that increased the well-being for all residents. Highlights include, her resident art gallery decorating our walls, Mother’s Day Tea event and her dedication to honoring veterans. It was important to Kathy to build strong relationships with her volunteers. Thanks to her thoughtfulness and encouragement, Hillcrest has grown a strong volunteer base. We have felt ourselves fortunate to have had Kathy on our Hillcrest team.

Her husband, Jim Dye, joined Monarch Healthcare Management shortly after as a chaplain. Jim traveled to and from several facilities within the Monarch company creating caring and compassion wherever he went.  He was more than a chaplain; establishing men’s groups, meeting our residents’ spiritual needs one-on-one, and even driving the Monarch bus, servicing our residents and staff.  He has been a friend to all with his kindness and thoughtfulness. 

Together, their spirituality is the foundation of their life work.

We will honor Kathy and Jim for their contributions in a farewell reception to be held at Hillcrest Rehabilitation Center on Wednesday April 28th,2021 from 1:30-3:30pm.
