The ones who care beyond compare.

Spanning multiple cultures, generations, educational backgrounds and areas of medical expertise, our multilingual team delivers care that’s as human as care gets.

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.

Chelsey Bailey

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.

Megan Wright

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.

Kayleigh Smith

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.
