GUILDERLAND CENTER, N.Y.

In his new position, the Kinderhook resident will assist in 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.

March, who has more than 13 years of experience in the health care and insurance industry, previously worked as regional census director for the company.
