Rebecca Staring has been promoted to Director of Nursing. With 25 years of experience at Loretto, Staring began as a Certified Nurse Aide in 1999 and became a registered nurse in 2003. She manages over 150 direct care staff and recently earned a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing.

Both Crehan and Staring played key roles in opening The Commons’ new Memory Special Care Unit in February. This 40-bed facility is Auburn’s first dedicated to dementia care. “We are incredibly fortunate to have these inspirational women at the helm,” said Loretto President and CEO Dr. Kimberly Townsend.
