Nancy Butner, a Bothell resident, was recently named vice president of Life Care Centers of America’s Cascades Region.

In this position, Butner oversees operations at 11 skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities in Washington.

“I have always enjoyed helping people,” said Butner in a press release. “Health care has always been my interest and my passion, and when I had the opportunity to do leadership in long-term care, it was a natural choice.”

Butner most recently served as executive director at the Kirkland Life Care Center for 14 years. In that position, she won one of two President’s Awards for Life Care’s Northwest Division in 2009. Before working for Life Care, she worked for Sun Health Senior Care. She has 19 years of experience in senior health care.

“With solid performance in many key metrics, Nancy was a natural choice to move into the RVP position,” said Linda Emmett, vice president of Life Care’s Northwest Division, in a press release. “I am excited to have her leading the Cascades team.”

Originally from Seattle, Butner has a master’s degree in business administration from City University of Seattle and a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Western Washington University. She currently resides in Bothell, with her husband, Dave, and their two daughters.

Life Care Centers of America’s Cascades Region office is located at 33528 6th Ave. South, in Federal Way.
