MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. – County Legislator Lyndon Williams declared Oct. 28 as David J. Gentner Day in Westchester County, at a recent Macedonia Baptist Church Gala in Mount Vernon, .
This honor was bestowed upon Wartburg’s president and chief executive officer while he accepted the Award for Excellence in Adult Care.
“While I am thankful to County Legislator Lyndon Williams for this honor, I am humbled every day by Wartburg’s remarkable staff who are much more deserving of recognition for their dedication to those entrusted to our care,” Gentner said.
Gentner has positioned Wartburg for unprecedented growth with the opening of a new state- of-the-art, 71,000 square foot Rehabilitation and Adult Day Services Center and a 51-apartment affordable housing facility on Wartburg’s 34-acre campus.
Gentner has led the expansion of Wartburg’s home care services to include Westchester and now the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Nassau County, Long Island. His vision for expanding the continuum of care includes an Outpatient Rehabilitation program in the Rehabilitation Center, currently under construction and scheduled to open later in the fall.
“Wartburg’s Board of Directors, staff and volunteers are proud to recognize David for this honor,” said Angela Ciminello, Wartburg’s Director of Development and Marketing. “As we begin to celebrate our 150th anniversary, David’s vision and leadership ensures our aging population will receive the superior care they need to live their best life, now and for generations to come.”
