August 1, 2022



(Alexandria, Va.) August 1, 2022 – Today, Goodwin Living™, a not-for-profit, faith-based, regional senior living and health care services organization in the National Capital Region, announced it has finalized the acquisition of Hermitage Northern Virginia, a senior living community in Alexandria. Hermitage Northern Virginia was previously owned and operated by Pinnacle Living, and is home to more than 100 residents, employs more than 100 team members and offers independent living, assisted living and long-term care.

“Goodwin Living is excited to welcome the residents and team members of Hermitage Northern Virginia into our family, and to get to know them, hear their life stories and support, honor and uplift them,” said Rob Liebreich, Goodwin Living president & CEO. “We also are grateful that Pinnacle Living has entrusted us to continue their long tradition of service and care for the older adults at Hermitage Northern Virginia.”

“Hermitage Northern Virginia has been a valued part of our faith-based, mission-driven focus for more than 60 years,” said Christopher P. Henderson, Pinnacle Living’s president and CEO. “Goodwin Living shares similar faith-based roots and a long-standing commitment to serving the needs of seniors. It brings tremendous comfort to know that our mission of serving seniors will continue in Goodwin Living’s capable hands.”

Hermitage Northern Virginia becomes the third Goodwin Living senior living community in the National Capital Region and is being renamed The View Alexandria by Goodwin Living™ under the Goodwin Living brand. Joshua Bagley, administrator and guide of the Health Care Center at Goodwin House Alexandria, will serve as interim Executive Director for The View Alexandria by Goodwin Living.

“Goodwin Living has a rich history of learning, and we are eager to learn from the diverse experiences of the residents and team members at The View Alexandria and to grow our mission together,” said Bagley. “We also look forward to continuing to serve current residents and team members in a faith-based, not-for-profit and welcoming community that has been the core of Goodwin Living since opening our first retirement community in 1967.”

The campus includes several structures as well as a top-floor community room in the main building with expansive views of Washington, D.C. for private gatherings, a restaurant-style dining room, game room, library, fitness room and chapel.
