Finger Lakes Health Recognizes Senator Nozzolio as “Partner in Quality”
Waterloo – Finger Lakes Health, a leading provider of services to older New Yorkers in the Finger Lakes region, recognized Senator Michael Nozzolio with the prestigious “Partners in Quality” award for his work in securing and preserving high-quality services for New York’s seniors.

“We could not do what we do without the unwavering support of Senator Nozzolio,” said Finger Lakes Health CEO and President, Jose Acevedo. “Senator Nozzolio is a true friend to our seniors and has tirelessly supported our mission. He understands how we strengthen people’s lives not only through our direct services but through our facility’s impact on the local economy.”

The “Partners in Quality” award was created by LeadingAge New York, a statewide association representing 570 organizations that provide care to some 500,000 New Yorkers of all ages. The award recognizes elected officials who fight to preserve quality services for seniors and also value the economic impact LeadingAge New York members have on their communities.

“It is an honor and privilege to receive the “Partner in Quality” award. It is my belief that providing quality, local healthcare is vital to the future of our area and I look forward to working with Finger Lakes Health as they modernize and expand their facilities. These critical improvements also help to support the local economy by growing new jobs and creating opportunities for the people in our region. It is important that New York State continue to make investments to strengthen area adult living centers and ensure the viability of the programs that serve our senior citizens and disabled,” said Senator Nozzolio.

Specifically, the award recognizes Senator Nozzolio’s major role in the expansion of the community hospital’s emergency department. Senator Nozzolio helped secure a grant for Geneva General for funding and recognized how important the “Journey to the Best” modernization and expansion is to the community and his constituents.

Senator Nozzolio has also supported the Finger Lakes Health Adult Day Health Care Program, encouraging the staff at the program to “think outside the box,” which has led to the Center’s 20 year survival in the Finger Lakes Region.

LeadingAge New York President James W. Clyne Jr. said: “This award is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to public officials who work hard every day to ensure our members can do what they do best – which is provide the highest quality care to frail elderly and disabled populations. Presenting lawmakers with this award lets all elected officials know their constituents are paying attention to the decisions that are being made in the long term care field across the state. And it thanks them for making decisions that help us do our important work in the best possible way.”

Finger Lakes Health provides long-term care services at four facilities on three campuses within the health system. These facilities are the Living Center at Geneva-North; Living Center at Geneva-South; Huntington Living Center; and the Homestead. Services include skilled nursing, behavioral health, Adult Day Health Care (ADHC), respite, transitional care and special needs (Alzheimer’s).

LeadingAge New York is the only statewide organization representing the entire continuum of not-for-profit, mission-driven and public continuing care, including senior housing, nursing home, adult care facility, continuing care retirement community, assisted living, home care, adult day health care and community services providers. LeadingAge New York’s more than 570 members serve an estimated 500,000 New Yorkers of all ages annually.
