MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- An 11-year veteran of senior services provider Wartburg, John Schuster, has been promoted to administrator of Meadowview Assisted Living, a 103-resident facility on Wartburg’s 34-acre campus.
Schuster has steadily worked his way up from admissions coordinator to manager to administrator-in-training and now to his current position.
He has a Bachelor of Arts and a master’s degree in public administration from Pace University and earned his New York state nursing home administrator’s license in 2012. He lives with his wife and son in Danbury, Conn.
David Gentner, president and CEO of Wartburg, said: “We are proud of John’s work in our nursing facility, and we are confident that he will ensure the care and services at Meadowview will continue to be at a premier level. His background will enable even more collaboration with our inpatient medical programs, our hospital partners and Wartburg’s home and community-based programs.”
“We are excited about having such a seasoned Wartburg colleague become administrator of Meadowview. He has been a key person in the growth of Wartburg for over a decade,” said Janet Palazzolo, vice president of residential services. “I look forward to John bringing to Meadowview his knowledge of administration and expertise in providing care to seniors.”
Wartburg is an award-winning provider of comprehensive senior services, including independent living, assisted living, Alzheimer’s/dementia care, skilled nursing, rehabilitation and hospice care. Its 34-acre campus in Mount Vernon serves seniors and their families in southern Westchester and the northern Bronx.
Wartburg’s nursing home has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as among the best nursing homes in New York state. Over the past few years, Wartburg has launched an ambitious building expansion program, including the Friedrichs Residence, with 61 independent living apartments, and a rehabilitation and adult day services center, both opened in 2013.
