Lutheran Services Carolinas (LSC) is once again the largest nonprofit provider of senior services in both North and South Carolina according to the LeadingAge Ziegler 200 list, which ranks the largest providers of nonprofit aging services in the nation.

In 2023, LSC moved from a national ranking of No. 54 to a national ranking of No. 40 among senior living systems. Its new rank reflects tremendous growth over the past year: in 2023, LSC achieved the fifth greatest increase in number of senior living units and the third highest aggregate growth by period of any senior living system in the nation, according to a press release from LSC.

In North Carolina, LSC operates senior living communities in Salisbury (Trinity Oaks); Albemarle (Trinity Place); Winston-Salem (Trinity Glen); Hickory (Trinity Ridge and Trinity Village); Clemmons (Trinity Elms); Arden (Trinity View); Asheville (Aston Park); Lumberton (Glen Flora); and Wilmington (Trinity Grove and Trinity Landing).

“LSC is humbled to be No. 40 and once again the largest in the Carolinas,” said Ted Goins, president and CEO of LSC. “But more significant than any ranking is the continued growth in the number of lives we touch every day.”

With more than 6,000 members and partners, LeadingAge is the nation’s largest association of not-for-profit aging service providers, with a focus on education, advocacy and applied research. Ziegler is the leading underwriter of tax-exempt and nonprofit financing in the U.S.
