Judith Wineland became administrator of the health unit at Parkside Homes, Hillsboro, in February.
Former administrator Lou Janzen is now the chief operating officer of the retirement and long-term-care facility.
Wineland was a longtime administrator at Mennonite Manor in South Hutchinson and also served as interim administrator at Waldren Place Assisted Living in Hutchinson.
“Her addition to our staff adds lots of experience,” Janzen said. “The big thing is we’ll be able to divide the workload.”
Wineland said she feels priviledged to work at Parkside.
“Parkside has been a good nursing home for such a long time and they’re moving into culture change with homes,” Wineland said. “I’ve been working for years to try to get to that, so I was really excited to be able to come and join in with them.
“So far it’s been great. There’s a really good staff that’s very dedicated and they work hard.”
