The Board of Directors of the Armenian Women’s Welfare Association (AWWA) and the Armenian Nursing and Rehabilitation Center (ANRC) is very pleased to announce the appointment of Stewart R. Goff, RN, MS as the new CEO of AWWA and ANRC. He assumed this position on May 8, 2019.
Mr. Goff brings his significant administrative experience and clinical background to leadership of these important non-profit institutions. Trained as an RN and Nursing Home Administrator, for the past 14 years Goff worked with Covenant Health as Executive Director of the 231-bed Mary Immaculate Nursing/Restorative Center in Lawrence, MA and as Administrator of Campion Health & Wellness, a 70-bed skilled nursing facility and rest home for infirm and senior members of the Society of Jesus. Both sites provide services across multiple levels of care. Previously he served as Executive Director of Goddard House in Jamaica Plain from 1999-2004.
Stewart Goff says “I am so honored to be part of an organization with such history of service to a community which has come to mean so much to me on a personal level. I look forward to applying my many years of experience to the provision of eldercare services in the Armenian tradition.” Goff is at home with the Armenian community as his wife is of Armenian descent; her grandmother appears in a 1948 photo of AWWA members.
“The Board of Directors welcomes the exemplary skills and experience that Stewart brings to our projects. We are excited to have his leadership as we look forward to expanding our services“, says ANRC/AWWA Board President Susan Deranian.
Founded in 1915, the AWWA supports the ANRC, the Elderly Project of the Hanganak Clinic, an NGO in Stepanakert, Nagorno-Kharabagh, and other initiatives that benefit the Armenian community in the greater Boston area and beyond. The ANRC is an 83-bed non-profit skilled nursing facility that offers the highest quality long-term care for elderly Armenian and non-Armenian residents as well as outstanding short-term care for residents of all ages and backgrounds who require rehabilitation before returning to their homes.
