Tony Ceccarelli: Keeping In Touch

Deep in the snow-belt region of New York State, a white Nissan Maxima with Pennsylvania license plates pulls into the parking lot of 180-bed Lourdes Hosp. in Binghamton, NY, each weekday morning. The driver, Tony Ceccarelli, the facility's dir. of food and nutrition svcs., says he doesn't mind the commute one bit. Having been assistant director at the location for four years in the late 1990s, he'd left to serve as fsd at a long-term care self-op closer to his Scranton home, his wife and their two young children. But, when Morrison Management Svcs., the f/s contractor at Lourdes for the past decade, as well as hospital administrators invited him back as director two years ago, he happily returned.
