Michael E. McRae today became president and CEO of St. Ann’s Community in Rochester.
McRae previously served the senior-living community as executive vice president and chief operating officer. He joined St. Ann’s in 2010 as senior vice president and administrator.
Betty Mullin-DiProsa, who served as president and CEO of St. Ann’s for 17 years, announced her retirement in May of 2013. During her tenure, Mullin-DiProsa helped the organization transition from a traditional skilled-nursing facility to being Rochester’s largest senior-housing and long-term-care system.
St. Ann’s Community occupies two campuses in Irondequoit and Webster, has a budget of $80 million, serves more than 3,000 people a year and employs more than 1,200 people. McRae will be the third person to hold the title of CEO in the 50 years of St. Ann’s Community’s existence.
“Having worked in healthcare for 27 years, this is an incredible privilege, and I’m honored to step into this role and lead an organization with such an exceptional history and passion for care and service,” McRae said in a statement.
McRae has a master’s degree in human services administration from Buffalo State College and a bachelor’s degree in gerontology from the SUNY Buffalo. He is a licensed New York state administrator. He also is a board member of Visiting Nurse Association and the Sea Gate Alliance.
St. Ann’s Community operates two licensed, accredited and certified skilled-nursing facilities, medical and social adult day programs, independent retirement housing and a freestanding transitional care center, and offers assisted- and enhanced-living services, specialized dementia care, geriatric outpatient primary care, and hospice care.Tags: Diocesan Appointments
