Peninsula Hospital Center Welcomes New PCECR Administrator
Cadet brings to PCECR nearly 20 years of experience in the field of nursing home administration. Prior to joining the PCECR staff, she most recently worked at Concord Nursing Home in Brooklyn, where she served as the assistant administrator for the past 11 years. She also spent nearly five years as the director of social services and admissions at St. Vincent de Paul Nursing Home in the Bronx.
Cadet looks forward to bringing her special people skills to her new duties, which include overseeing the admissions, dietary, environmental, security and building services departments. Additionally, she will be intimately involved in a variety of special projects that the extended care facility is involved with throughout the year. According to Janet Miele-Powers, Senior Vice-President/Administrator of PCECR, she believes that Cadet will have a positive impact on the facility and looks forward to a positive working relationship. A native of Haiti, Cadet migrated to America in 1963, where she attended high school and Nassau Community College, where she studied to become a licensed laboratory technician and served in that field for many years. In 1974, she decided the time was right to go back to college and enrolled at Brooklyn College, where she received her degree in social work and community studies. Positions in the social services departments of a few nursing homes followed. Ms. Cadet then decided to advance herself in the nursing home field and attended Central Michigan University, where she received her masters in health care administration in 1998. She has also been a licensed Nursing Home Administrator since 2002.
Cadet is the mother of two grown children and a grandchild, who all live near each other in the Elmont section of Queens. Closeness to home and family was a deciding factor in choosing to apply for the assistant administrator position at PCECR. Her immediate goal is to bring her vast years of experience in the nursing home arena to PCECR, where she plans to be very much a part of the facility's family, working toward bringing the best possible care to its residents.
