Arriving on campus in April of this year, I have had a few months to do a thorough assessment of Niagara Lutheran Health System from my post as President and CEO. The preliminary results have yielded nothing but optimism for the Health System, its patients and residents, employees, and volunteers. The reputation of quality and compassion that we strive to achieve in the community makes us a prime choice for health care and housing needs in Western New York. In fact, I believe we are the premier continuing care community in the area.
By 2025, over 30% of the population of the US will be 65 or older. Because of this, the demand for our services will continue to grow. It will become necessary for our organization to continue to strategize so that we maintain our position in the market, and can continue to provide the best quality care to our residents and patients. We will continue to network with managed care organizations, hospital systems, and other local groups; as well as look for expansion opportunities to meet our community’s needs. Ever so important to the initiatives we have across our campus is the support of all of our Board, volunteers, and the Niagara Lutheran Health Foundation. It is because of the generous support of our donors that we are able to pursue many endeavors that simply could not happen without them. For this, we thank them not only for their generosity, but for the compassion and caring behind their actions that affects so many on our campus.
