Christopher Vito is passionate about taking care of people. A former hospital CEO, he founded Nevada Adult Day Healthcare Centers to meet the needs of the growing elderly population in Southern Nevada.
Bank of Nevada provided funding for Vito to open the first of his five adult day care centers in 2004 and continued to finance his other facilities in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011. Bank of Nevada even assisted to fund the purchase of the Centers’ real estate in 2010.
“There is no bureaucracy with Bank of Nevada,” said Vito, President and CEO of NADHC. “Because my banker understood my business’s growth and the local market, they were able to provide a financing package that worked for me. That’s why I prefer dealing with local banks - they know their customers and their business.”
NADHC strives to maintain the independence of the elderly and disabled citizens. All five facilities provide nursing services, physical-occupational-speech therapies, social-recreational-physical activities, hot nutritious meals, physician-dental-podiatry services and much more. Coupled with these much-needed services are NADHC’s fleet of 32 buses and vans to transport seniors’ and disabled citizens to and from their homes and his five centers.
Vito admits that it was a struggle in the beginning. At one time he only had $10.29 left in his bank account with several thousand dollars in outstanding accounts receivables. He feared he wouldn’t be able to make payroll, but Bank of Nevada stood by him by providing necessary funding to move his business forward.
“From the beginning we were impressed with Christopher Vito’s commitment to serving the needs of the senior and disabled community in Southern Nevada,” said John Guedry, President and Chief Operating Officer of Bank of Nevada. “His drive and determination goes to the core of Bank of Nevada’s ‘Forward Together’ program of working together to achieve a common goal.”
Since its inception, NADHC has grown from a handful of employees to a staff of over 96 employees. At full capacity, Vito said the centers will be able to serve 374 senior and disabled citizens a day, which will give him the opportunity to hire more staff.
“My passion is being able to take care of our state’s most vulnerable citizens, the elderly & disabled. In addition to serving the elderly and disabled citizens, I want to be able to create jobs which will help move our community forward,” Vito said. “I know Bank of Nevada will be with me as my business continues to grow.”
