Jake Goering is a CEO without a building. He’s not only OK with that, he’s thrilled. The ability to create something new — including the facility to house it — is part of what attracted him to his new job. Goering leads the newly merged Seminary Home and St. Brigid’s at Hi-Park. Both Red Wing nursing homes will continue to operate until a new, integrated cutting-edge care center run by Benedictine Health System opens in late 2014. This is much more than a merger: The new facility will be connected to the local medical center. And beyond that physical connection, Goering noted, will be a new model for senior care at the same time Mayo Clinic Health Services takes over the local hospital, clinics, home health care and other services.
