Paul is more than just an administrator. He is one of the owners of the Suffolk Center and its Chief Operating Officer. So when you hear people say that nothing goes on at the Suffolk Center without Paul knowing, you can believe it! And that’s one big reason why the facility runs so well. A sharp eye for the big picture and equally sharp attention to even the smallest details along with an unbending commitment to the comfort and care of his residents are Paul’s recipe for success. Paul’s leadership by example has spread that same dedication throughout the facility where Paul and his staff view taking care of their residents as a privilege.

Melissa has worked in Skilled Nursing Facilities for the last 15 years. Melissa joined the Suffolk Center family in 2009 as an Occupational Therapist Assistant, bringing with her over ten years’ experience in skilled nursing facilities. Her winning way with residents complimented by her exceptional organizational skills earned her a promotion to Assistant Director of Rehabilitation in 2013. In September of 2015 she became Director of Rehabilitation where she leads an outstanding department of Occupational, Physical, and Speech Therapists. Everyone on Melissa’s team truly connects with every resident. They make it a point to get to know every patient in the facility personally as well as knowing their physical condition. According to Melissa “The better we know our residents, the better job we can do of creating their personal care plans. And that leads to good outcomes in the therapy department, and everywhere else here at Suffolk Center.” With a first class team of therapists, a state of the art facility, and Suffolk’s new rehabilitation car, this is one therapy department that can’t be beat.
Leta has been in the field of social work for over seventeen years and has been involved at every level from psychotherapy and psychiatric hospitals to nursing homes, assisted living facilities and adult day care. So it’s safe to say that there aren’t too many situations she hasn’t helped people deal with. “I’m so fortunate to have such a diverse background. We‘re here for our residents through every stage of their treatment, from welcoming them to Suffolk Center and getting them settled in, to preparing them for discharge. And thanks to my background, when I’m putting a family member or a resident at ease about almost anything, I can tell them that it’s something we’ve done before and not to worry. And that makes us both feel great.”
