Kane Cerny
Admissions/Marketing Director

I was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio before making my way to North Carolina almost ten years ago for my first job opportunity in patient care. I have been working with skilled nursing patients in and out of facilities since I was 18 years old, and have loved every second of it. I feel so very fortunate to have a career that allows me to meet people from so many different backgrounds and walks of life through the application process. Please feel free to reach out with any questions you might have.
