Angie Harrison ,LNHA
Angie’s story is special. She is a newly-minted Nursing Home Administrator, but probably has more experience than most seasoned veterans. We should know; she got that experience at Centers Health Care. In fact, she began her career in nursing homes right here at this facility, way back in 1998. She has worked with some of our strongest administrators, as a recreation staff member, a department head, an assistant administrator, and most recently as an administrator in one of our Buffalo homes. “It took a while, but it was worth the effort. I love working with the elderly; elder care has been my entire professional life, and now I have the chance to make an even bigger impact. It is an honor and a privilege to be back to where I started.”
Sometimes the best way to get a really great administrator is to find someone who has the heart, and teach them everything else. And we think you’ll agree that we found a great one in Angie.
Beth Beecher ,RN
Director of Nursing
“The only thing I love more than being a nurse, is being a nurse at Corning Center.” That’s the kind of director Beth is. Someone who is passionate about their work, about their staff and about the people we care for here. Beth knows everyone, and more important, everyone knows her. And there’s no doubt about who runs the nursing department at Corning! “If you’re going to take good care of people, you need a good organization, and that’s exactly what we have here. Caring people who are dedicated to the people we care for. That’s what we’d all want, and that’s what we make sure our residents get.” No wonder the residents here and their families are all so thankful that we have her.
Director of Therapy
Chelsey graduated with her Doctor of Physical Therapy from Utica College. Originally, she had decided she never wanted to work in a skilled nursing home. That has changed in a big way. She started her professional career at Corning Center in 2016 and says: “Looking back, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love the setting and the rewards of caring for a variety of individuals.” When the Director of Rehab position opened, she didn’t think twice about it. “I was excited to step up as a leader of an amazing rehabilitation team and to work alongside a devoted management team. Centers has become a second home for me.” She is looking forward to enhancing her skills and directing the rehab team in order to provide optimal, patient-centered care.
Director of Recreation
After attending Corning Community College, Megan became a Certified Nursing Assistant. She accepted an offer to work in the activities department and went on to become Director. She strives to improve quality of care and quality of life.
Director of Social Services
Kayleigh didn’t choose long term care without a lot of thought and a pretty fair amount of work history. She has worked with populations ranging from children and teenagers to octogenarians and older. “I didn’t start out with the goal of pursuing a career in long term care, but I love where my life has taken me. After four years at a skilled nursing facility in Pennsylvania and seeing first-hand how gratifying it is to be able to make such an important difference in the lives of elderly people, I knew I found my calling. And then I found Corning Center. Corning Center is exactly the type of facility I envisioned as my perfect home. And I get to work with a great team that is so resident focused. I feel I have found the perfect home.” So do we Kayleigh, so do we.
Knowledge is health.
For the absolute highest quality of care, Corning Center staffs medical providers on each unit who stay in constant communication with leadership throughout the day. Team collaboration is our forte, and this commitment helps us maintain an unbeatable continuum of care.
Our team also works hard to keep therapies as consistent as possible, tracking all communications through an advanced electronic medical record system. This ensures immediate transmission of information across the entire care network.
