The ones who care beyond compare.
Spanning multiple cultures, generations, educational backgrounds and areas of medical expertise, our multilingual team delivers care that’s as human as care gets.
Aaron has a Bachelors Degree from Yeshiva University in Strategy and Entrepreneurship and Public Health. He is in the process of becoming a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator and is looking forward to pursuing a Masters in Health Administration. As a leader at the Center, he motivates the team to provide excellent care and service to our residents. He does whatever is needed—whether that means offering guidance, fixing a computer, sweeping the floors, clearing the snow, coming in at 6AM every day or sleeping in the building. He is always there to help anyone, giving everyone the tools they need to be successful and feel joy in the work they do here. “The ability to help those who need assistance is the most gratifying feeling,” Aaron says. “The grind and hustle of the day to day keeps me fresh and ready to tackle every challenge. I love what I do and wouldn’t choose another profession in the world. Working at Centers is a privilege that few are lucky to have. We get all the support and resources we need—and more!”
Director of Social Services
Susan joined Centers Health Care with the two things that we value most in a Social Worker – lots of experience and a heart as big as they come. For 19 years, Susan has guided residents and family members through the ins and outs of long-term care. There is virtually no situation she hasn’t seen, no challenge she has not successfully overcome, and no family member she has not put immediately at ease with her caring, friendly and competent demeanor. Susan was born and raised in The Bronx and earned her Master’s degree in Social Work at Florida State University. Susan has worked in both large and small facilities, but regardless of size, she always says, ”families are families.” They want to know that their loved one is being cared for, that their lifestyle is active and enjoyable, and that their future is bright. “And here at Williamsbridge Center, I can say, yes, yes and yes. And that makes me feel great.” We think it will make you feel great, too.

Over the years, her career expanded at one of the largest city hospitals in New York State as a critical care nurse and then a nursing leader. Ingrid has always had a love for the geriatric community and has achieved Advanced Practice Nursing degrees as an Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner and a Clinical Nurse Specialist with a focus on the geriatric population.
Ingrid recognizes the important roles that families play in the resident’s progress and she uses her interpersonal skills to engage with the residents at Williamsbridge Center, their families, and her team. Her motto: “I believe in teamwork and the multidisciplinary approach to patient care. I believe that each member of the team has a significant role to play in the management of care for all of our residents and I am committed to providing quality care to all of our residents.

Kevin served in the United States Army, completing a combat tour in Afghanistan. He is a graduate of the Mercy College Masters of Occupational Therapy Graduate program. Kevin is also LSVT® Big certified, working with Parkinson’s patients. He has spent the last 6 years in skilled nursing with a focus on team building, good communication, interdisciplinary development and improving quality of care to help ensure successful outcomes in rehabilitation.
Director of Recreation
Monique Sampson is a Bronx native who graduated from Lehman College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Recreation Education. “Recreation is more than bingo,” she says. “Activities build friendships and strengthen residents physically, mentally, and emotionally. I am passionate about motivating the residents to move and groove like they never have before. We have parties, live entertainment, karaoke, and many other activities to enhance the quality of life of the residents. It is more than a job, it’s what I love to do.”
Knowledge is health.
For the absolute highest quality of care, Williamsbridge Center staffs medical providers on each unit who stay in constant communication with leadership throughout the day. Team collaboration is our forte, and this commitment helps us maintain an unbeatable continuum of care.
Our team also works hard to keep therapies as consistent as possible, tracking all communications through an advanced electronic medical record system. This ensures immediate transmission of information across the entire care network.
