“The mission and values of Eskaton and The Reutlinger Community are very compatible, and we are eager to embark on this strategic partnership to improve the lives of seniors throughout northern California,” said Todd Murch, President and Chief Executive Officer of Eskaton, in a statement. “We look forward to using our resources, experience, and relationships to expand services and programs offered to the broader East Bay area and to residents at The Reutlinger Community now and in the future.”
