PRESIDENT AND CEO, JEWISH SENIOR LIFE
Years in current role: 7 (17 with JSL)
What has been your organization’s biggest success over the past year?
Despite the challenges of COVID-19, Jewish Senior Life has achieved certification for the third time as a Great Place to Work based on a survey of our employees. When employees receive the support they need to do what they love — at a place where they enjoy working — I consider that our greatest success. The high-quality care and services we provide are a direct result of the pride that our very special and dedicated employees feel in their work. To demonstrate our commitment to both our employees and the individuals we serve, this year we received the region’s first WELL Health Safety Rating from the International WELL Building Institute for steps we have taken to address health and safety in a post-COVID world — another achievement we are proud to share.
What are your expectations for the rest of this year?
We remain focused on attracting and retaining top talent in a very competitive workforce environment. I expect Jewish Senior Life to continue its reputation as a high-quality organization as we build on our full spectrum of services and programs to meet the changing needs of the broader Rochester community.
What are your favorite things about Rochester?
Rochester is known nationally for its collaborative, high-quality health care services. It is a privilege to be part of a health care community that inspires our team at Jewish Senior Life to be innovative and forward-thinking.
