Chestnut Park at Cleveland Circle Welcomes New Executive Director
Andrew Goshert Continues Over 13 Year Senior Living Career with Benchmark Community
"Benchmark's mission is to elevate human connection and keep its residents, families and associates connected to what matters most in their lives. Throughout my career, this has been my personal mission so it's gratifying to be able to have discovered a company that not only has an excellent reputation, but that mirrors my own beliefs," says Goshert. "Chestnut Park is a highly regarded community and I look forward to contributing my knowledge, experience and skills to its operations."
Goshert joins Benchmark from Brooksby Village in Peabody, Mass. where he served as director of continuing care for the retirement campus, overseeing 104 skilled nursing beds, 92 assisted living apartments and several memory care neighborhoods with 32 units. Before Brooksby, he was the director of health services for Dunwoody Village in Newtown Square, Penn. near where he was born and raised. He graduated from Pennsylvania State University, earning a B.S. in Health Policy and Administration with an emphasis on Gerontology. Goshert presently resides in Boston with wife, Caitlin, and dog, Oliver.
"It's not too often that someone like Andrew comes along and we are thrilled to have him," says Kathy Hooker, regional director of operations for Benchmark. "He brings the operational excellence of having worked for much larger continuing care retirement communities with a strong desire to develop the close interpersonal relationships we so value here at Benchmark."
Chestnut Park at Cleveland Circle has been a mainstay in the Boston area for nearly 30 years. The community provides 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.
