SOMMER LEE ESPINO, RNC, DIRECTOR OF NURSING

MISSION: Lead, educate, and evaluate all nursing operations and collaborate with an interdisciplinary team to ensure efficient and compassionate delivery of resident care.

 

IN OTHER WORDS: Oversee every detail of nursing to make sure you get the care you need.

 

BACKGROUND: Bachelor’s in Nursing with a postgraduate degree in Maternal & Child Health. Over 30 years of experience as a nurse (more than 20 years in long-term care!) Certified in PRI, MDS, ACLS/BCLS, and Infection Control.

 

I TAKE PRIDE IN: my leadership skills. An effective leader adapts to each person’s needs — directing, teaching, supporting, and delegating, depending on each staff member’s level of competence and commitment. Most importantly, an effective leader communicates, making sure the listener hears them by speaking in their language.

Working in this setting has made me realize this is where I belong. As a nurse, nothing is more fulfilling than seeing your patient heal and improve, day by day. In long-term care, residents come to us in their most vulnerable state and stay for a long time. This gives us a chance to build meaningful relationships with them so that when they’re ready to leave, they’ve become our family.

KRUNAL BHATT, PT, MS, DIRECTOR OF REHAB

MISSION: Manage all aspects of the rehabilitation department. Coordinate with all therapy disciplines to ensure superlative delivery of care.

 

IN OTHER WORDS: Ensure every patient gets a customized, effective rehab plan that works.

 

BACKGROUND: Bachelor in Physical Therapy. Masters in Sports Science. 8 years experience in skilled nursing facilities, providing therapy to patients with a wide range of diagnoses.

 

I TAKE PRIDE IN: my ability to relate to people of all ages and backgrounds.

Honestly, Morris Park feels like a second home. The staff is very close-knit, and we share a common goal: make the facility feel like home for our residents.

Jasmine Torres, DIRECTOR OF HOUSEKEEPING

MISSION: Assess proposed admissions for appropriate placement, consulting with nursing, administrative, and therapy personnel as needed. Provide facility tours for prospective clients and families.

 

IN OTHER WORDS: Make your transition to Morris Park as smooth and comfortable as possible.

 

BACKGROUND: Extensive experience in concierge services for seniors.

 

I TAKE PRIDE IN: my professionalism and broad knowledge base in my department. I am always willing to go the extra mile.

It’s a pleasure being part of Morris Park’s success. Seeing our residents transition in such a positive way fills my heart with joy.

ANGELA VITACCO, DIRECTOR OF HUMAN RESOURCES & CORPORATE COMPLIANCE

MISSION: Hire & retain exceptional staff members, oversee their training and quality scores, and cultivate an overall culture of cooperation and respect.

 

IN OTHER WORDS: Develop and implement smooth processes so all you notice is the harmony of a well-oiled (and completely compliant) team. Create and nurture an environment where staff, residents, and the community at large work to understand each other, despite our differences.

 

BACKGROUND: MS in Human Resources Management with 25+ years of human resources experience in a variety of industries (media & entertainment, healthcare and pharmaceutical).

 

I TAKE PRIDE IN: my ability to listen. Facts are important, but sometimes it’s more important to listen and try to understand what someone is feeling in order to help them find the best possible solution.

I love being a resource and safe space for employees. Knowing I can make a difference, provide comfort or simply put a smile on someone’s face makes it all worthwhile. It’s more than simply leading; it’s leading with heart. My door is always open. Stop by anytime!
