PRESBYTERIAN SENIORCARE NETWORK REPORTS FIRST COVID-RELATED DEATH

August 11, 2020

Washington, PA, August 11, 2020 – Today the Washington campus of Presbyterian SeniorCare Network received notification that the death of a severely-ill Southmont skilled nursing resident on Monday, August 10, was attributable to COVID-19. This is the first death in the Network’s 10-county footprint that is attributable to COVID-19. Because of health information privacy rules, information about the resident is not being released.


“Our residents are like family to us,” says Derek Culbertson, Executive Director at Southmont. “We are deeply saddened and extend our heartfelt sympathy to the family. COVID-19 is an insidious virus. Since it entered our country, it has proven that nobody is immune to it.”
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Presbyterian SeniorCare Network has been aggressive about following the guidance and protocols issued by local, state and federal authorities.


“Caring for the most vulnerable population is both challenging and rewarding,” Culbertson continued. “Our residents and their families are counting on us like never before and we will continue the fight to decrease the risk of exposure to this virus.”


Presbyterian SeniorCare Network is committed to transparency and has notified the appropriate authorities and has reached out to Southmont families and the team members on its Washington campus.

PRESBYTERIAN SENIORCARE NETWORK HIRES NEW CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER

July 30, 2020

Oakmont, PA, July 30, 2020 – Today Presbyterian SeniorCare Network President and CEO, Paul Winkler, announced the hiring of a new Chief Financial Officer after completing a thorough four-month national search process.


“We are thrilled to share that a local and well-known colleague, Todd R. Boslau, CPA, will be joining our team early in September to serve in this mission-critical leadership role,” said Winkler. “Todd is well known and highly respected within the non-profit, senior services network, and has a reputation as a strong collaborator and great mentor.”


Winkler shared that the organization’s search committee received resumes from more than 30 qualified candidates, completed interviews with approximately a half dozen of the applicants and narrowed the field to a select few, who completed additional interview rounds.
According to Winkler, it was providential that Mr. Boslau emerged as the final choice through the national search process. Many of the Network’s finance and leadership team have known Todd for years as Audit Partner, with the firm Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLC. Winkler noted, “Todd has actually served as the partner-in-charge of the audits of Presbyterian SeniorCare and most of our affiliate entities for many years, and is already well-known to board members and leaders across our Network.”


For the past 25 years, Mr. Boslau has worked for accounting firms that are now part of Baker Tilly where he started his career after graduating from Grove City College with a degree in Accounting. His extensive experience includes as serving as the lead partner in charge of the firm’s Healthcare Practice, including the western PA senior living services practice since 2007 as well as their lead HUD housing expert. Additionally, he has served as a member of the CARF Financial Advisory Panel and a regular presenter at LeadingAge state conferences. CARF is an international, not-for-profit accreditation organization that promotes quality, value, and optimal outcomes by conducting surveys to assure that quality standards are being met. LeadingAge is the national association representing 6,000 not-for-profit organizations across the entire field of aging services.


Mr. Boslau, who also will serve as an officer of the organization, said, “I am looking forward to leveraging my 25 years working in public accounting including my last 13 years focused on healthcare and long term care organizations for the benefit of Presbyterian SeniorCare Network.”


Boslau and his wife, Adrienne, live in Hampton Township, along with their two sons, Lincoln, age 5, and Evan, age 3.

Testing a weak link in nursing homes

June 15, 2020

After a nursing aide tested positive for COVID-19 on May 19, Presbyterian SeniorCare moved quickly to test all staff and residents at its Elmwood Gardens facilities in Erie for the highly contagious respiratory disease.

The Memorial Day weekend was fast approaching, and leadership, worried about the testing capacity in rural Erie County, chose a Monroeville lab to do the work, PSC Executive Vice President Susan Dachille said.
