Riverside Health System recently announced that Tina R. Thomas has been named executive director of memory care and the Center for Excellence in Aging and Lifelong Health (CEALH). Thomas assumed the position earlier this month on July 5.

In her new position, an inaugural role, Thomas will serve as the connection across the extensions of the health system’s memory care and neurology services, which were brought about following the establishment of the Martha W. Goodson Memory Care Center earlier this year. In addition, she will support programs provided through CEALH and other recent gifts to the Riverside Foundation.

Thomas has more than 25 years of experience in the health and human services fields. She served as the Alzheimer Association’s senior associate director of community engagement and also worked as a home health and hospice administrator and a dementia education specialist. She has degrees in gerontology, nursing home administration, Alzheimer’s and dementia care, among others.

“We’re pleased to welcome Tina to the team,” said Ed Heckler, president of lifelong health at Riverside, in a statement. “Her vast knowledge coupled with the devotion to bridging the informational and emotional support needed during one’s health care journey will be a valuable asset as we continue to expand our memory care and neurology services. We recognize that caring for people during this journey goes beyond the patient. With the addition of Tina and other services, we are here for you every step of the way.”
