History

A History of Caring for Indiana’s Seniors

Wallace and Connie Miller had a vision to provide compassionate, quality health care for the aging. Their vision became a reality in 1964 when they opened the first Miller’s Merry Manor location on 157 acres just outside of Warsaw’s city limits. Our corporate headquarters still operate out of that original building but our care has extended far beyond north central Indiana. Today, we operate rehabilitation centers, assisted living communities and nursing homes throughout the state of Indiana.

Over the years, the company has grown strategically, currently operating 31 rehabilitation centers, 11 Assisted Living properties, a transitional care unit, and a therapy company, with partnership in a home health care agency, and a workforce of well over 3000 throughout the State of Indiana. The company’s leadership maintains strong ties with the Miller family and our Board of Directors includes the four living children of Wallace and Connie. Since 2000, Miller’s Health Systems – the parent company of Miller’s Merry Manor – has been managed by: Patrick Boyle, CEO; Lori Haug, CFO; and Gregory Spaulding, COO.

100% employee owned and operated

Since the early days of the company, the Miller family recognized the dedication and support the employees have given to help Miller’s Merry Manor grow and prosper. Consequently, in 2006, the Board of Directors formed an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), allowing employees to become beneficial owners of the business operations of the company. Today, the Miller’s ESOP provides a way to carry on the proud traditions and culture of Miller’s, while allowing an avenue for future growth to benefit the company and its eligible employees. At the present time, Miller’s Health Systems is one of only three 100% employee-owned long-term care companies in the United States, and is ranked in the group of largest employee-owned companies in the nation.
