Origin Story: Dr. Bill Thomas and Steve McAlilly and the Genesis of The Green House Project

Susan Ryan sits down with Dr. Bill Thomas, creator of the Green House model of nursing home care, and Steve McAlilly, president and CEO of Methodist Senior Services in Tupelo, Miss., the first organization to build a Green House home.

You will hear Bill and Steve describe how Green House came to be, what precipitated the need for change, and how the two collaborated to create the first radically noninstitutional nursing homes in Tupelo, which spawned a global movement for better eldercare.

Find out more about Methodist Senior Services at its website, www.mss.org and Dr. Thomas’ latest innovation, Minka Homes and Communities, at www.myminka.com.
