Mark Weiss left his position as CFO and administrator of Montefiore on June 27, accepting a position as CFO of The New Jewish Home in New York City.
“Mark has been a vital member of our management team and has worked tirelessly over the last 17 years – he is someone we all depend on for advice and input,” said Montefiore President and CEO Seth Vilensky in an email to employees announcing Weiss’s departure. “Mark has left a lasting imprint on Montefiore, and he will be sorely missed. His devotion to our Montefiore community and his commitment to quality care and continuous improvements are hallmarks of his steadfast service to the organization. Mark was instrumental in many new initiatives designed to drive census in our various service lines, improve financial results, accelerate staff recruiting, enhance technology and centralize many of our support services. He has collaborated with many outside organizations to elevate our organization to be the very best.”
A spokesperson for Montefiore confirmed Weiss’s departure. Ari Hyman, licensed nursing home administrator who is administrator for The Weils campus in Bainbridge Township, will serve as acting administrator at Montefiore and will split his time between the two campuses until a new administrator is placed.
Montefiore controller Nate Dotson was promoted to CFO, effective July 1, replacing Weiss in that role. Leah Rotenberg, formerly an accountant and accounts receivable manager, was promoted to controller to replace Dotson.
The New Jewish Home is one of the largest Jewish senior care organizations in the country, with an annual revenue of about $200 million. It has campuses in Manhattan, Westchester County and the Bronx.
