The Grand Healthcare System, which provides management and administrative services for the Guilderland Center Rehabilitation and Extended Care Facility located at 428 Route 146, today announced that Joshua Gurock has been appointed administrator.

In his new position, Gurock will be responsible for the direction, supervision, compliance and maintenance of the facility’s day-to-day operations, as well as its adherence to federal, state and local laws and regulations.  He will also ensure that the highest level of quality care is being provided for residents in need of either short- or long-term nursing care following hospitalization.

“We are delighted to welcome Josh to our team,” said The Grand Healthcare CEO Jeremy Strauss, whose company operates five other New York-based facilities in Queens, Pawling, Chittenango and Rome. “He is a diplomatic and motivational leader who brings a tremendous amount of senior living experience to this important position.”

Before that, he spent eight years as director of operations for Omaha’s Jewish Social Services and its agencies. While serving in that role, he oversaw the dietary, activities, volunteer, transportation, environmental services, information technology, and maintenance departments for the Rose Blumkin Jewish Home, a skilled nursing facility with an annual budget in excess of $10 million. 

Gurock is both a licensed nursing home administrator and licensed assisted-living facility administrator. He holds an undergraduate degree in English literature from Yeshiva University and master’s degree in public administration from the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
