NEW CITY – A New City woman, who has more than 25 years of experience in health care administration, most recently at Nyack Hospital, has been named Rockland County director of the Office for the aging.
Tina Cardoza-Izquierdo replaces June Molof, who retired after 41 years.
“We are confident that Tina has the skills, background and compassion needed to take the helm of this very important department that is charged with assisting our seniors as they age,” said County Executive Edwin Day. “She will direct services and programs that are crucial to helping our older residents age with dignity and comfort.”
There are more than 60,000 people in Rockland over the age of 60
Cardoza-Izquierdo is fluent in Spanish, which Day said will help the county’s efforts to reach out to Rockland’s growing Latino community.
At Nyack Hospital, she was director of Medical Staff Affairs and Physician Services where she was responsible for the development and management of Medical Staff Affairs and Continuing Medical Education program functions.
Cardoza-Izquierdo and her husband have four children.
