Is American Senior Communities COO Out?
A reliable source within the long-term care industry tells Advance Indiana that American Senior Communities COO Dan Benson is the second top official of the company to exit the company following last week's raid of former CEO James Burkhart's sprawling Carmel mansion and the company's headquarters by federal investigators. Late last Friday, ASC announced the firing of Burkhart, offering assurances that the decision to terminate the CEO's employment had nothing to do with the company's operation of any nursing homes serviced by ASC. Advance Indiana could not confirm the rumor of Benson's departure. Advance Indiana contacted ASC earlier this afternoon seeking confirmation of the rumor, but the company did not return a message left with its spokesperson.
