BONITA SPRINGS — A Bonita Springs-based senior living community developer has a new chief operating officer to support the company’s growth and expansion plans.
Discovery Senior Living hired Cleveland native Bill Sciortino, who comes to the firm with 18 years of experience in multiple senior leadership roles at Chicago-based Vi Living, according to a press release.
"Our industry has been maturing and evolving for decades...but the pace of change has really picked up," Sciortino says, adding that Discovery Senior Living is “embracing and leading” in the senior living industry.
Sciortino’s experience in planning and allocating capital spending to enhance residents’ experiences and satisfaction will be integral as Discovery Senior Living aims to create optionality and personalization of resident experiences across its growing community portfolio, which currently consists of 62 communities across 14 states, the release states.

There, he enhanced security and network infrastructure and led the design and implementation of core systems for billing, cost control, clinical and facilities operation, and financial reporting. He became senior vice president of operations in 2003, and oversaw corporate and community functions including food and beverage, lifestyles, resident care, and later, sales and marketing as well as Vi’s market research department.
