Richard K. Pellerin, the President of Century, embarked on his professional journey in the skilled nursing industry. During a pivotal time marked by substantial transformations in reimbursement procedures, he noticed that even the largest companies were facing challenges. It was then that he resolved to assist healthcare facilities in navigating the complexities brought about by this substantial transition, leading to the establishment of Century. With a dedication to forging lasting partnerships, Richard’s leadership has created a culture of unwavering commitment to empowering patients with independence through therapy.
Century offers comprehensive therapy, staffing, and consulting services to both skilled nursing and outpatient facilities, enabling them to dedicate their full attention to delivering the superior care their patients truly deserve. Built upon the unwavering commitment to ethical and principled conduct, our organization adheres to the fundamental belief of “doing what’s right” for our facilities, patients, and staff on a daily basis. We remain steadfast in our pursuit of establishing robust, ethically-driven partnerships, prioritizing the highest standards of quality and integrity.
Our primary objective is to enhance our clients’ financial, operational, and clinical performance, ultimately empowering them to excel as frontrunners in providing compassionate healthcare.
Pellerin graduated from Louisiana State University with a Bachelor of Administration in General Studies and began his career in Nursing Home Administration.

In 2015 he started a Scholarship Fund for those pursuing a career in physical and occupational therapy and speech-language pathology. He also set up an Employees 1st Fund and Community 1st Fund to give back to his employees and the communities they serve. Richard personally donates his time to many local and state organizations.

Century was established with a steadfast commitment to always doing the right thing, and it all begins with looking out for those closest to us. Our devoted team of therapists, nurses, recruiters, and consultants consistently brings an exceptional degree of proficiency, empathy, and ethical conduct to their daily care services. In recognition of these efforts, we initiated the Century Foundation, designed to pay tribute to their dedication and extend a helping hand to our employees and their families during times when they need it most, offering assistance and scholarship funds.
Century is committed to helping our employees in times of need. We encourage any Century employee or affiliated company partners who have been affected by financial hardship due to unforeseen circumstances, to apply for a grant from the company’s Employee 1st fund.
Century employees have displayed an overwhelming amount of kindness and generosity to rally behind their co-workers in need by contributing to our Employee 1st Fund.
