The Board of Directors of the New Milford Visiting Nurse Association has appointed Kerri Ann Brinckerhoff, RN, MSN to the position of Executive Director/Chief Executive Officer. She assumed day-to-day leadership of the nationally recognized Medicare agency on Monday, February 5, 2018.
“Kerri joined the agency last year as our Hospice Director. She demonstrated a natural ability to lead, and a passionate commitment to help shape the long-term strategic vision for the agency. The Board of Directors and I believe that we have the right culture and talent in place. We see in Kerri a leader who can leverage our strengths to help build a stronger, more vibrant agency that is able to meet future challenges,” said Richard Kosier, President of the New Milford VNA & Hospice Board of Directors.

Ms Brinckerhoff noted, “This is an exciting time for New Milford VNA & Hospice. We have deep roots in the community. For one hundred years, we have taken care of families, and we have built strong partnerships with the medical community and local municipalities and businesses. To stay true to our mission and still stay financially strong, we need to modernize operations. I have no doubt we can make that happen.”

Brinckerhoff earned a Master’s of Nursing degree at Western Connecticut State University. She and her husband have been residents of New Milford for the past twenty-three years and are the parents of five children.

Her new role creates an open position at the agency. New Milford VNA & Hospice has commenced a search for a new Hospice Director.
