Oswego Health Vice President Jason Santiago, who serves as Chief Operating Officer for both Springside at Seneca Hill, the organization’s premier retirement community, and The Manor at Seneca Hill, the health system’s skilled nursing facility; has appointed Amanda Saternow as Long-Term Care Community Liaison and Michael Cali as Springside’s Director of Operations.
The two new leadership positions will work together to increase awareness and enhance our premier retirement community, Springside, along with making sure there is an increased awareness of Oswego Health’s short and long-term services. Saternow will be in charge of the sales and lead development for Springside, while Cali will oversee the daily operations at Springside.
Saternow will also assist seniors needing skilled nursing care or those who may be in need of physical therapy, occupational therapy, or nursing services offered by Oswego Health Home Care or any other Oswego Health entity. In addition, she will provide tours to those interested in living in one of Springside’s attractive, maintenance free apartments, duplexes or cottage homes. “Amanda will provide that connection between Oswego Health’s post-acute care services, so that individuals not only know what is available, but also how to appropriately access the care they need,” Santiago said.
Saternow is a graduate of SUNY Oswego and most recently worked at the college’s Office of Business and Community Relations. She also has real estate experience. “I enjoy working with community members and I look forward to sharing the many great programs and services that Oswego Health has to offer our seniors,” Saternow said.
Springside’s new Director of Operations has worked for the health system for the past ten years, advancing in his career during his tenure. He initially provided home care and would later deliver care at Oswego Hospital’s Emergency Department as an Emergency Department Technician and eventually Senior Emergency Department Technician. Last year, he decided to make a career change and was appointed Springside’s Executive Chef. In this position, not only were his cooking skills noted, but also his management abilities. “We felt Michael was a great fit for this new position,” Santiago said. “He is well-liked by the residents and staff and has the talents and proficiencies enabling him to serve as our new operations director.”
Cali said he was excited about his new Oswego Health position. “This position provides me with some exciting opportunities,” he said. Cali is a graduate of Johnson & Wales University’s culinary program, located in Rhode Island.
