"Over the last two years, Doron has been a tremendous asset to Chestnut Park at Cleveland Circle," says Kathy Hooker, regional director of operations for Benchmark. "I am confident in his ability to advance our mission to elevate human connection as well as effectively lead this next chapter for The Village, and ensure the best possible care for our residents."
Kathein had a long career in hospitality managing hotels in Israel, New York City and Beverly Hills before transitioning to senior care. He served as executive director for Esplanade Senior Living in White Plains, N.Y., for 11 years prior to joining Chestnut Park in 2016.

The Village at Mariner's Point is a grand, seaside community providing individualized assisted living and memory care for all stages of dementia supported by Benchmark's effective, award-winning Mind and Memory approach; a robust activities program; experienced staff; and a host of on-site amenities.
