Asbury Place continuing care retirement communities has named Tammy Christian McKinney assisted living administrator for its Steadman Hill campus in Kingsport.

McKinney, who has served in health care for 26 years, has experience in the fields of geriatric, home health and cardiac care. She has been with Asbury Place since 2004 and previously served as nurse manager.

“Tammy is a proven leader and true asset for Asbury Place,” said Marjorie Shonnard, chief operating officer for Asbury Inc. “She has a huge heart for serving our residents and for Asbury’s nonprofit mission.”

McKinney said she is fortunate to be at Asbury Place doing what she loves.

“I’ve worked in a lot of fields, but serving older adults is my passion,” McKinney said. “I enjoy being at Asbury Place because our home-like environment makes it feel like family. Since we’re a smaller community, there is a lot of one-on-one time between our residents and associates.”

Over the last year, Asbury Place’s Steadman Hill campus has undergone numerous enhancements, and more are planned this summer. The campus opened for residents in 1994.

McKinney is a graduate of Mountain Empire Community College in Big Stone Gap, Virginia, and earned ACLF administrator certification in August 2015. She lives in Johnson City with her husband, Bryan.
