Wallingford, CT, October 30, 2017….. John Sweeney of Prospect has been appointed Administrator at Masonicare Health Center in Wallingford. In this role, he will be responsible for the Masonicare Health Center and its ancillary services. He succeeds Thomas Gutner who retired on September 30 after thirty-four years with the organization.
"John is well-suited to step into this challenging role," said Jon-Paul Venoit, President & CEO of Masonicare. "We will benefit from his many years of experience and his familiarity with our organization as well as his knowledge of skilled nursing and rehabilitation services." Masonicare Health Center has more than 360 beds, including short-term and outpatient rehabilitation, long-term and dementia care, two hospital-licensed units, an outpatient GI suite and hearing center.
Sweeney joined Masonicare in February of 2011 as Administrator of the organization's Newtown campus. In 2013 he moved into Corporate Services overseeing capital projects, most notably the construction of Masonicare's new campus in Mystic. The 179-unit independent and assisted living community opened late last year.
A licensed nursing home administrator, Sweeney graduated from UCONN with a B.S. degree in health systems management and he has a M.S. degree from University of New Haven in healthcare administration.
