PENICK VILLAGE – Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow

CEO Jeff Hutchens, COO Carolyn Hendricks & CDO Hunter Wortham talk all about Penick Village, located behind the Weymouth House in Southern Pines.,

From the founding of Penick Village to the challenges and rewards of today, these three committed individuals, with a combined 55 years of experience, cover the premise and philosophy of this iconic Independent & Assisted living Family based center.

From their website:

Penick Village has a distinct, multi-dimensional approach to keeping our residents healthy and happy. Our vision is based on an uncompromising commitment to deinstitutionalizing the aging experience. What does this mean? In its simplest terms, we strive daily to provide a welcoming home to our residents and promote a healthy lifestyle.

Mission Statement: “We are a family creating a loving community by making each day great for one another.”



As a ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina, this mission along with our vision of deinstitutionalization, is of great importance to the organization and influences each and every decision made. Both our vision and mission include our residents, their families, and our co-workers while also encompassing all elders in our community.

We’ve recently adapted the philosophy of “Making Today Great,” a mission to encourage our residents and staff everyday to enhance the health and wellbeing of every member of the Penick family through stewardship and service.  Around campus you will see employees wearing green buttons as a daily reminder of our heartfelt pledge to our community.
