Ohio Living Leaders Named McKnight’s Pinnacle Award Winners

COLUMBUS, Ohio (Dec. 16, 2022) – Two senior leaders at Ohio Living, Laurence Gumina and Dana Ullom-Vucelich, have been selected to be inducted into the 2023 McKnight’s Pinnacle Awards class. Gumina is the organization’s CEO, while Ullom-Vucelich serves as chief human resources officer.


McKnight’s first-ever Pinnacle Awards honors industry veterans who have set standards, driven change, and provided guidance and inspiration to peers and the senior care, skilled nursing or home care sector at large.


“With the Pinnacle Awards, McKnight’s is honoring the individuals who have not only reached the top of the profession but managed to remain there for years,” said Publisher Craig Roth. “They’ve inspired us in the past and they’ll continue to do so for as long as they remain in the field.”


Nominations were judged by an external panel of industry experts. Winners will be honored at a gala awards ceremony and dinner in Chicago on March 7, 2023.


“It is a great honor and privilege to care for someone as they transition through life,” says Laurence Gumina, Ohio Living CEO. “Dana and I are humbled to receive Pinnacle Awards from industry partners whom we respect and work alongside.”
