2021 Apogee Awards Honoree: Patricia Will
Meet Patricia Will, Founder and CEO of Belmont Village Senior Living
Patricia Will used her real estate background to launch Belmont Village Senior Living in 1997 after her mother-in-law had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Today, Belmont Village is a nationally recognized, fully integrated owner, developer and operator of 31 first-rate senior housing and care communities. Will has continued to spearhead the company’s growth. She researched the Florida market for five years and in 2020, opened the doors to the company’s first Florida community, Belmont Village Fort Lauderdale, a 12-story luxury high rise senior living community. Additionally, Will partnered with Baptist Health South Florida, the largest not-for-profit healthcare organization in the region, to reimagine the integration of hospitality and healthcare in seniors’ housing. Belmont Village Coral Gables is the first in a series of communities planned by Baptist Health South Florida and Belmont Village Senior Living and is the second facility in Florida for Belmont Village.
