OSWEGO, NY – Physical Therapist Shweta Singh has been promoted to the position of rehabilitation manager at The Manor at Seneca Hill.
Singh, a three-year employee at the 120-bed skilled nursing facility, has moved through the ranks of the rehabilitation department since she arrived in 2009. She was promoted two other times, initially to second in charge and then as acting director. She began her new position as rehabilitation manager on Feb. 1.
As rehabilitation manager, Singh develops and implements treatment plans for both the facility’s residents, as well as for the short term rehabilitation patients, who need physical or occupational therapy following surgery, an accident, or an illness. In addition to overseeing the care provided at The Manor, she supervises 12 staff members.
“I feel very honored,” Singh said of her latest promotion. “I am working with some of the finest people from our administration to our therapy team in a facility that is considered to be one of the best skilled nursing homes that also offers an excellent rehabilitation program,” she said.
At The Manor, Singh has gained the praise of others for her hard work, excellent skills and rapport with the residents and short-term rehabilitation patients.
“I have enjoyed working with Shweta for the last three years,” said Maureen Annal, Oswego Health vice president and The Manor’s chief operating officer.” I am confident our therapy department will continue to provide outstanding care to our short-term and long-term residents under her leadership.”
Singh is originally from India and from a family of medical professionals.
“I come from a family of doctors,” she explained. Her maternal grandfather was a surgeon and her mother is a physician, to name a few. “In college, I found I really enjoyed physical therapy and decided that would be a wonderful career for me.”
After earning her bachelor’s degree from Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Medical College in Indore, India, she moved to the United States, to gain a well-rounded education in physical therapy. As a student at Texas Women’s University, where she earned her master’s degree, Singh was presented the outstanding student award by the college’s department of kinesiology, was a member of the Magna Cum Laude Honor Society and the Golden Key International Honor Society.
Shortly after her graduation from Texas Women’s College, Singh came to work at The Manor, where not only does she like working alongside the staff, but she also enjoys caring for the residents and patients.
“I have a lot of respect for older individuals,” she said. “They have a lot to share and I take pleasure in listening to these conversations.”
The Manor at Seneca Hill provides 24-hour skilled nursing care, and has a comprehensive rehabilitation department that offers physical, occupational and speech therapy weekdays and on Sundays.
