Vashon Community Care, now managed by Transforming Age, announced a change in facility leadership last week.
Jose Brita, the administrator who began in February, is no longer with the agency.
In a letter addressed to residents, family and friends of VCC and that was also posted on Facebook, Kevin McNamara of Transforming Age shared the news and provided information on the transition.
“Transforming Age is anxious to build a strong leadership foundation for Vashon Community Care and we believe it is critical to find an executive director who is truly the right fit for VCC,” he wrote. “Transforming Age’s Northstar goal is to consistently provide the best care and services to VCC residents and to fully support those who serve them, our VCC staff.”
Transforming Age Assistant Health Services Director, Mike Schwartz, will serve as interim executive director at VCC through the recruitment process.
Schwartz has been with Transforming Age for more than three years and is familiar with a new computerized care system and other service upgrades Transforming Age implemented at VCC.
“During this time, we anticipate a smooth transition and continued enhancements to VCC’s services and operations,” he stated.
