About Bay Village of Sarasota
Bay Village of Sarasota, Inc. is a Florida not-for-profit corporation organized to own and operate a retirement community. The corporation owns the land, buildings, and all the assets of the community.
Rather than stockholders, the corporation has “members” of the congregants of Pine Shores Presbyterian Church, which established Bay Village on Christian principles in 1972.
The sole function of the members is to elect the corporation Board of Directors. The Directors, who serve voluntarily without compensation, are responsible for goal setting, policy making, standard setting, program evaluation, and fiscal management of Bay Village.
The Board of Directors employs an Executive Director, who manages the day-to-day operations of Bay Village of Sarasota.
Established on Christian principles, Bay Village of Sarasota, Inc. offers a dynamic, secure and comprehensive residency for older adults, providing meaningful community life with continuing care.
The vision of Bay Village of Sarasota, Inc. through 2020 (5 years) is to:
- Strive to achieve the highest quality of service to our residents.
- Extend effective dialogue between residents and staff.
- Promote the efforts of staff and residents to build a caring community.
- Balance net operating revenues and financial reserves so that we may have the financial strength to maintain our infrastructure, provide our staff with a competitive compensation and benefit package and have the capability to remain debt free.
