Public Retirement Reception scheduled for CCHC Director


December 27th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

A public reception will be held tomorrow (Wednesday) in Atlantic, for a woman who has spent more than 30-years in service to the community. Cass County Home Care director Lorilyn Schultes has announced that she will retire at the end of 2011, concluding a career spanning over three decades in the health care industry. Her retirement will be effective January 1, 2012.

Denise Coder, currently manager of public health at Cass County Home Care, will now manage operations of the entire agency effective January 1, 2012. Coder has over 15 years of experience in the areas of community and public health, serving in dual roles at Cass County Memorial Hospital and Cass County Home Care. She has supervised community health assessments, managed health promotion and prevention planning initiatives and created public health programs.

Schultes announced her retirement from CCHC with “Mixed emotions.” She says she will greatly miss being around her colleagues, many of whom she considers to be good friends, but at the same time she welcomes the opportunity to have more time for her family and friends.

A reception in honor and recognition of Schultes’ career and contributions to Cass County Home Care will take place on Wednesday, from 2 – 5 p.m. at Cass County Home Care, located at 1500 E. 10th St., Atlantic. Refreshments will be offered and attendees will be able to give Schultes their congratulations and best wishes.
