Vedder named Director of Nursing at Greene Meadows
Eric G. Vedder, RN, a professional with more than 12 years of administrative experience managing clinical health teams that specialize in long term and rehabilitation care, has been appointed Director of Nursing at Greene Meadows Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Catskill. His appointment was announced by facility Administrator Todd Zbytniewski.
Founded in 1975, Greene Meadows Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is a 120-bed facility long acknowledged as a leading senior care provider, which offers a full continuum of care from short-term rehabilitation to long-term skilled nursing care, as well as an array of specialty programs and services.
“We are glad to welcome Eric to our team,” said Zbytniewski. “Eric’s experience in rehabilitation nursing enhances our continued delivery of quality, successful, resident-centered care.”
Vedder, a Greene County resident, will manage a nursing staff of more than 100 employees dedicated to both short-term rehabilitation and long-term care. He comes to Greene Meadows from two years as Director of Nursing at a skilled nursing center in Columbia County.
“I have lived in Greene County most of my life. I am honored to have this wonderful opportunity to give something back to my community”. My loved ones are here, I went to school here and I understand the culture of Greene County. My goal is to provide holistic care that is underscored by my skills in coordinating nursing priorities, resolving conflict and serving as a resident and family advocate.”
According to Zbytniewski, Vedder has specialized experience in sub-acute short term rehab, medical and surgical, dementia and long-term care modalities and a “demonstrated ability to provide routine care and counseling, but also recognize life threatening conditions. Eric also has in previous assignments developed expertise in managing telemetry, ventilator, geriatric, spinal cord and neurobehavioral units. He also has expertise in wound care.”
“My goal is to provide the highest quality of care achievable and to remain open to new modalities that enhance the lives of our residents and short-term patients,” said Vedder.
Vedder is married to wife Caroline and they have six children and reside in Acra, NY.
