History, Mission, & Values

Holladay Park Plaza has been serving Portland-area seniors since 1967. The plan to build Holladay Park Plaza began in 1963, when the Presbytery of the Cascades partnered with the Lloyd Corporation to build a Continuing Care Retirement Community near downtown Portland. The community, called Holladay Park Plaza, was designed to serve residents who desired a vibrant, urban lifestyle.

In 1999, Holladay Park Plaza joined the Pacific Retirement Services family of affiliates. The Plaza’s Board of Directors felt that the affiliation would allow their community to provide enhanced services to residents. Since the affiliation, Holladay Park Plaza has been extensively renovated and remodeled, adding many services and amenities to its campus.

We are committed to excellence in our industry through the work of experienced and educated staff and directors, enhanced by resident involvement. We honor our Christian heritage and welcome the diverse religious traditions of our residents by maintaining a positive outlook, and embracing new ideas to provide programs and services that support our vision. We are dedicated to providing high-quality services including housing, nutritious meals, nursing, maintenance, and other support to those we serve. We are committed to being good financial stewards, providing support and sponsorship for residents, when appropriate, while keeping costs commensurate with services provided.


Vision Statement:

The vision for Holladay Park Plaza is a retirement community with a unique atmosphere, where people’s lives are enriched as a result of being there. The Plaza is a place where residents enjoy life and grow old with dignity. The atmosphere is personal, warm, inclusive, secure, and fun.
