SPRINGVILLE—Roger Soricelli closed an era on Dec. 15 when the longtime administrator of Jennie B. Richmond Nursing Home retired.
A resident of Java Center, Soricelli worked for 15 years at the nursing home, but has more than three decades’ experience in healthcare administration. He began his time at the Jennie B. Richmond Nursing Home in 2002 following roles in Batavia, Malone, Olean and Florida. He earned a bachelor of arts in economics at SUNY Fredonia, and a master of arts in administration and leadership at SUNY Plattsburgh.
As the landscape for skilled nursing and long-term care has evolved, Soricelli helped Jennie B. move with it. An example of this was the development of a short-term rehabilitation program.
“My wife, Margo, and I have both had very satisfying careers,” Soricelli said. “Now we are looking forward to spend a lot of time spoiling our grandchildren.”
