A Family Tradition
The roots of South Mountain Memory Care run deep in the Lehigh Valley. Founders Bill Wall, Joe Cimerola, and Joe Bubba have come together to create the first privately owned standalone "Small House" designed memory care community in the Lehigh Valley.
Bill Wall is the current owner of AP Houser and Valley Builders, two esteemed companies with history dating back to 1912. Bill grew up in the family business working alongside his grandfather Sam Landis, Sr. until illness sidelined the patriarch. Bill took the reins and continued to build on the success of the organization as a legacy to his grandfather. It is these community ties and dedication to his grandfather’s memory that have led Bill to build a community where loved ones could have the peace of mind that their elders will receive proper care.
LifeCare Holdings, LLC was founded in 2001 by Joseph Cimerola, its President and CEO. Joe brings over 35 years of extensive CEO experience in the non-profit health care sector and demonstrated leadership experience and success in the private for-profit health care sector and senior living market.
Joseph Bubba is one of Fitzpatrick, Lentz, and Bubba's Law founding members. His concentration is focused towards physician-hospital relationships and physician practices and represents several health care facilities and staff matters. Joe also has a background in corporate and business practice in relation to land transactions, mergers, and acquisitions.
