NEW CITY, N.Y. -- A new Director of the Office for the Aging in Rockland County has been appointed to replace June Molof, who retired after 41 years.
She is Tina M. Cardoza-Izquierdo, a health care administrator of more than 25 years, most recently at Nyack Hospital.
The New City resident is married with four children.
"We are confident that Tina has the skills, background and compassion needed to take the helm of this very important department that is charged with assisting our seniors as they age," said Ed Day, Rockland County Executive in making the announcement.
"She will direct services and programs that are crucial to helping our older residents age with dignity and in comfort."
Cardoza-Izquierdo speaks Spanish fluently, which will be beneficial, Day noted, in reaching out to the growing Latino community.
"I look forward to working with this team of exceptionally caring professionals and growing the current roster of programs and services that assists our valued senior citizens," said Cardoza-Izquierdo.
The Office for the Aging (OFA) provides programs, through its own efforts and sub-contractors, to assist older people in maintaining independence and to provide employment and volunteer activities.
Cardoza-Izquierdo was previously director of Medical Staff Affairs & Physician Services at Nyack Hospital. She was responsible for the development and management of Medical Staff Affairs and Continuing Medical Education program functions for over eight years.
She was also assistant director of Administrator on Duty programs at North Central Bronx Hospital and coordinating manager, Emergency Medicine at Lincoln Medical & Mental Health Center.
