Margaret Tietz Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Jamaica Hills held a legislative meet and greet Tuesday afternoon to introduce Yoel Lichstein, the new executive director. Lichstein has served as an administrator for over 20 years in many healthcare facilities including Beth Abraham, a member of the CenterLight Health System, as is Tietz.
Congressman Grace Meng, Assembly members Ed Braunstein, David Weprin, Nily Rozic and Michael Simanowitz; Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz and state Sen. Toby Stavisky took part in the gathering. All of them shared stories of family and constituents who have used Tietz’s facility.
Lichstein shared his vision for continuing Tietz’s fine tradition of serving healthcare needs in Queens since 1971. He also spoke of the outstanding results attained in the facility’s recent 2013 survey by the State Department of Health and the rich diversity of the staff he now leads.
