Oakwood Service Center Inc.
The brown brick exterior of Mercy
Health and Rehabilitation Center has-
n't changed much over the past
decades. It still stands tall on St.
Anthony Street but inside there have
been many recent changes, from
increasing the number of nursing
positions and designing new occupa-
tional and physical therapy programs,
to aesthetic changes which enhance
the quality of life for its more than
200 residents and short-term rehab
patients.
The newest addition to MH&RC
staff is Lane Duger, Physical Therapist
and new Director of Rehabilitation
Duger formerly was Director of
Rehabilitation for almost eight years
at Rosewood Heights in Syracuse. He
did his undergraduate study at the
University of Buffalo and is currently
in the Doctorate program at Upstate
Medical University in Syracuse.
Duger, 44, has lived in Auburn
since 1985 and he says the move is
like "coming home."
"I left a job I was exceptionally
happy at but I'm very happy to be
able to provide services where I live,
where our two sons will grow up," he
said. "The salt of the earth live here
and I'm proud to serve them"
Lane's wife Robin, a Physician
Assistant at the Syracuse Veteran's
Administration Hospital, said Auburn
offers everything anyone could hope
for in a community including theater,
sports, outdoor activities, dining,
good schools and so much more!
In his leisure time, Lane coaches
boys and girls baseball and Pop Warn-
er football.
As for his work at Mercy Rehab,
Duger said, "ultimately rehabilitation
will be transitioning to an evidence
based practice providing the most cur-
rent assessment tools and treatment
programs that are supported by
research. I am working closely with
world class researchers, clinicians and
educators like Dr. Dale Avers, Dr.
Patrick VanBeveren and Dr. Berry
Berg at Upstate Medical University to
name just a few".
"I think it's vital to the residents.
It's a lot of work but that's why we're
here," he said.
Duger said his goal for the rehabili-
tation department along with growth
is to provide the highest clinical stan-
dards in Physical Medicine and Reha-
bilitation.
"We want people to know we're
very serious about rehab here," he
said.
The facility is also welcoming
Renee Becker, who became Director
of Social Services in December and a
new Medical Director to take over for
Dr. Robert Kalet who passed away last
year.
Mercy's Administrator, Steve Ash,
said Dr. Marc Maller has a wealth of
experience providing and directing
physician services in skilled nursing
facilities. "I think people are really
going to enjoy his energy and enthusi-
asm".
Dr. Maller joins Dr. Martin
Weitzel who has been covering the
facility and serving as interim director
for the past several months.
Suzanne Reid, RN has been the
Director of Nursing since August
2004. Prior to coming to Mercy, she
served in the same capacity at
St.Camillus in Syracuse. One of
Suzanne's goals for the nursing
department is to assure that rehabili-
tation patients are enabled, through
nursing support, to meet their opti-
mal levels of functioning. "The ulti-
mate goal is to get people back into
the community."
Judy Greco, Director of Admis-
sions and the Adult Medical Day Pro-
gram said, "Mercy remains commit-
ted to providing quality long and
short term care. It is our goal to meet
the health care needs of the commu-
nity and enhance the quality of life for
all who receive our services. We wel-
come the addition of the new staff."
The facility encourages existing
staff to continue their education and
has hired several recently certified
nurse aides and licensed practical
nurses to augment staff on all three
shifts.
