Lee Johnson has over 40 years of experience in business.  He began his career in 1977 financing industrial properties and brokering commercial real estate, which later sparked an interest in long-term care facilities.  He is best known for building and operating Casa Palmera Care Center in Del Mar, California.  This nationally-recognized residential treatment center initially opened as a skilled nursing facility and grew to national prominence after its transition to Behavioral Health in 2005.  Its innovative approach to “whole person” holistic care has improved the lives of thousands of patients, including professional athletes and executives from around the world.  In 2018, the United States Veterans Health Administration selected Casa Palmera to pilot ‘rapid access’ services for at-risk veterans.  Johnson has a strong record of building, training and developing teams that create long-term value, and he looks forward to applying this knowledge to other facets of the business world.
