St. Louis Regional Chamber CEO launches senior living business

Ascent Senior Care has plans for three retirement homes in St. Louis and has already begun its first

ST. LOUIS – Tom Chulick, the outgoing CEO of the St. Louis Regional Chamber, has founded a new company that will develop and manage senior subway residential facilities.

The company, Ascent Senior Care, has plans for three retirement homes in St. Louis and has already begun its first: a 124-unit, $ 20 million, self-contained community called Avalon Park, located on the northwest corner of Gutermuth Road and under construction is MO-364 Freeway in Cottleville.

Chulick will serve as President and CFO of Ascent Senior Care. He works with Kevin Kast, a longtime healthcare manager who previously ran SSM Health’s operations in St. Charles and the Hospital Sisters healthcare system on Metro East.

“We started Ascent because we realized that people in the community they home in want to downsize while being close to their families – but with the kind of lifestyle we associate with a good retirement.” said Chulick in a statement. “We see this as the housing option necessary to attract talent to the St. Louis area. People want high quality housing and lifestyle options for children through to senior life.”

Avalon Park, slated to open in the summer of 2021, offers private condominiums, 24-hour security, a variety of services and amenities, and access to on-site support in a pet-friendly community.
