Get to Know Rob Whitten, President of JGS Lifecare

Rob Whitten

Dear Residents and Families,

I am honored to be writing this letter as the new President of JGS Lifecare. Having been Executive Director at Leavitt Family Jewish Home (JNH) for the last four years. I am very excited about this opportunity and feel fortunate to be in the company of such amazing residents, families, and staff members. While many of you know me from JNH, I am very much looking forward to establishing bonds with all of you at Ruth’s House.

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing from Johnson and Wales University and attended the University of Connecticut School of Business Long-Term Health Care Management Program. I am licensed as a Nursing Home Administrator in both Connecticut and Massachusetts.

It’s interesting to note that my first professional position was in a nursing home while I was in college. It was there that I fell in love with the senior living sector and knew that this is where I wanted to be for the rest of my career. Being appointed President of JGS Lifecare is literally a dream come true.

In my new role, I feel it’s important to listen to you and obtain feedback on a continuous basis. My goal is to foster daily interaction and improve your day-to day-life. Maintaining a close relationship between us is my top priority! I will work, every day, to make JGS Lifecare the best it can be.

Warm regards,

Rob Whitten
JGS Lifecare
