It all started back in 1976 when Brian Foley purchased his first nursing home. Over the years, the company grew and the idea that providing compassionate, quality care was the most important thing. The growth and his success at building the company did not go unnoticed. INC Magazine named Apple Health Care to its list of America's Fastest Growing Companies in 1988 and 1989. INC Magazine also named Brian Foley its 1989 "Entrepreneur of the Year". Throughout the past four decades, Apple has been guided by Brian's vision to change the culture of nursing home care. That vision, and unwavering commitment to care for others, is the thread that binds Apple together.
