Vice President & Administrator of Oswego Health Home Care
Val has been a Registered Nurse, serving in various clinical and leadership roles throughout Central New York caring for countless patients. Her career began in 1993 in our Medical Surgical Unit, where she worked until 1995 before beginning a 13-year journey in the home healthcare field transferring to the Oswego County Health Department as a Supervising Public Health Nurse for their homecare agency. In 2004 she took on the role of Area Director for Gentiva Health Services and served in that role until 2007 before transitioning to the Homecare Director for Franciscan Health Support. In 2008 we were fortunate to have Val return “home” to her Oswego Health family where she’s remained ever since, serving as Associate Administrator for Nursing 2008-2011, before earning the title of Chief Nursing Officer in 2011.
Since 2008, Val has been a true leader for our 400+ clinical directors, nurses, nurse assistants and technicians, respiratory therapists, and social workers. Throughout the pandemic her leadership has not gone unnoticed as she worked alongside her team providing direct patient care, filling critical positions not only at the hospital but at Seneca Hill Manor as well as her help with the vaccine clinics.
As the Vice President & Administrator of Oswego Health Home Care, Val will be responsible for the overall operations, quality, and management of Oswego Health Home Care. She will serve as a liaison between professional services staff and referral sources, as well as support the agency management and staff.
