Jeff is not only the administrator of the Bronx Center, he is a founding partner of Centers Health Care and the personal mentor to every administrator we have had, in every facility we own. That’s because no one embodies the Center's credo of Heart, Health, Home more than Jeff. He leads by example and is never too busy for a resident, a family member, or an employee. He knows everyone by name and won’t let anyone with a problem, no matter how big or how small, leave before it is solved. Maybe it’s because he was raised that way, or because he came from a service –minded family, but Jeff is the kind of administrator that employees want to work with, and that families want taking care of their loved one. The Bronx Center is and continues to be, his creation.

Pegeen joined the Bronx Center family in 2000 and made an immediate impact. Helping to oversee the physical, occupational and speech therapy unit here as well as the on-going in-service training that keeps our therapists up to date on the most current practices and protocols. But most important is the tone set by Pegeen in the therapy gym. Therapy can be difficult at times and the therapist and patient need to form a team, a personal bond, a commitment that will achieve their common goal together. That’s the attitude that Pegeen has fostered and our good outcomes in every aspect of therapy are testimony to how well it works. And even on the hardest workout days, there’s always one constant sound coming from the gym – laughter. Because success is fun!
