New Administrator Appointed for The Commons Retirement Home in Auburn | Local News | Auburn, NY | Auburnpub.com

The largest nursing home operating in Cayuga County has a new chef.

Syracuse-based Loretto announced Monday the hiring of Bryan Petko as the new administrator of The Commons at St. Anthony in Auburn. Petko comes to the 300-bed facility after serving as senior executive director of Golden Living Center Oil City in western Pennsylvania.

In this role, which Petko held for 14 years, he “maintained the quality of care and services, oversaw all regulatory requirements and successfully managed the facility’s financial goals,” Loretto said in a press release. .

Loretto operates The Commons, which is owned by a nonprofit that formed when the former Cayuga County nursing home merged with the former Mercy Health and Rehabilitation Center in 2014. Residents of the he county-run facility on County House Road moved into newly renovated space at The Mercy Campus, and the new entity was renamed The Commons.

“I am very happy to be back in New York and joining the Loretto family in Auburn,” Petko said in the press release. “Along with the team of talented and dedicated professionals, I look forward to ensuring that our residents continue to enjoy the high quality care and dedicated service we provide at The Commons. I appreciate the family atmosphere and the kind people I met in Auburn and the Commons. I can already say that Commons is a special place for our residents and employees to work. »
