Leavitt Family Jewish Home Announces Recognition for Two Doctors
LONGMEADOW — Leavitt Family Jewish Home, part of JGS Lifecare and Chelsea Jewish Lifecare, acknowledged Dr. Udaya Jagadeesan and Dr. David Pierangelo for their outstanding work. Both doctors recently received a certificate from the Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine (AMDA) in honor of the National Day of Recognition for Long-Term Care Physicians. This certificate recognizes the dedication, compassion, and quality of care that Jagadeesan and Pierangelo provide to the long-term residents at Leavitt Family Jewish Home.
“We are so proud to have Dr. Jagadeesan and Dr. Pierangelo taking care of our residents,” said Robert Whitten, executive director of the Leavitt Family Jewish Home. “Their hard work and devotion are an inspiration to all of us. It’s no wonder they are beloved by residents and staff alike.”
The U.S. Congress designated this day in 2010 to honor AMDA founder Dr. William Dowd, who recognized that residents of nursing homes were patients with complex medical problems and that physicians need to be involved in establishing standards of management and clinical care for the frail elderly and other residents in long-term-care facilities.
