New Community congratulates Veronica Onwunaka on her promotion as the new administrator of the Extended Care Facility. A familiar face at NCC, Onwunaka, a registered nurse and former director of nursing, has worked at New Community for 25 years. “Veronica’s long history with New Community Extended Care Facility shows her dedication to residents at the nursing home,” CEO Richard Rohrman said.
“Her expertise as the longtime director of nursing will enhance her ability to lead the five-star rated facility into the future,” he said.
Onwunaka’s passion is to provide excellent nursing care and her three priorities now are to (1) continue to develop ways to improve the 180-bed capacity skilled nursing center in order to maintain its current five star rating with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid; (2) implement new techniques to enhance Extended Care’s relationships with hospitals, community health organizations and the general public in order to raise the profile of Extended Care regionally; and (3) create new methods to enhance employee morale, promote teamwork and foster a collaborative environment. Beverley Spencer, RN, BSN, LNC, HN-B, has been hired as the new director of nursing.
