Salem Hills Rehabilitation and Healthcare in Purdys had two employees receive recognition awards Luis Urrieta
from the New York State Health Facilities Association/New York State Center for Assisted Living Arthur Sacer
(Hudson Valley Region).
Arthur Sacer, director of food services, received the 2019 Manager of the Year Award. Luis Urrieta,
oor technician, received the 2019 Heart and Hands Award
Sacer is a graduate of Carmel High School and has a degree as a culinary trained chef via e
Culinary Institute of America. Sacer began his career in the food service department at Salem Hills
in 2009. Sacer’s enthusiasm, hard work and going “above and beyond his duties” quickly spiraled him
through the ranks and he was promoted to Director of Food Services in 2012, said Maura Brennan,
administrator of Salem Hills Rehabilitation and Nursing Center.
“Arthur is a role model, leads by example, and goes above and beyond in meeting the needs of the
residents we serve,” said Brennan. “We are proud that he has been honored with this prestigious award
Sacer is the innovator of many food programs at our facility, too. Within his tenure, he has imple-
mented programs such as made-to-order breakfast groups, cultural diversity luncheons (both gather
monthly); and has held numerous outdoor barbecues for the residents on summer days.
Sacer also nds time to volunteer in our facility’s connector program, where employees will visit one
particular resident on a weekly basis to lift their spirits. Sacer has also formed many great relationships
with his colleagues and, particularly, the residents of our facility. Sacer takes time out of his day to
greet our residents as they stroll into the main dining room and even, at times, will assist transporting
Luis Urrieta has worked at Salem Hills Rehabilitation and Nursing Center for 19 years. He started
as a housekeeper and then was promoted to housekeeping lead and then to oor technician, which is
the position he currently holds. During any given day you will see this team member working hard but
with enthusiasm. Whether it is mopping oors, wiping down door knobs and glass panes, emptying
garbage or assisting in laundry, he performs the tasks with gusto. Urrieta is often seen laughing and
joking with his co-workers, residents and visitors. Urrieta takes initiative and uses his people skills
to positively a ect residents’ quality of life. Since he is bi-lingual he often assists with their Spanish
speaking residents. He is a loyal employee who has formed many longstanding and trusted relation-
ships with residents and sta alike.
“Luis positively impacts residents’ health and welfare, and is a role model to others,” said Brennan.
“We are proud that he has been honored with this prestigious award from NYSHFA/NYSCAL.”
A little more about Urrieta: he was born and raised in Atlixco Puebla, Mexico. Atlixco Puebla was
once a small town but has now grown into a larger city. Urrieta is the oldest son and he has a younger
sister who still resides in Mexico with Luis’ father. Urrieta attended Ignacio Ramirez High School.
He met Lina, the love of his life, in his home town of Atlixco Puebla, some 25 years ago. In 2000,
Luis came to the United States. He is married to Lina and they have two children, Ana and Abraham.
Urrieta is very involved in e Assumption Church in Peekskill where he is a lector and Eucharistic
Sacer and Urrieta were presented with awards on May 7 during the Association’s annual conference
e New York State Health Facilities Association/New York State Center for Assisted Living is a
member-driven association of providers of long term care services, caring for individuals of all ages
in proprietary, not-for-pro t, and government-sponsored skilled nursing, post-acute, rehab, adult care
and assisted living communities across the state of New York. NYSHFA/NYSCAL is dedicated to
assisting its members in achieving excellence in the provision of e cient and e ective quality long
term care services through leadership, professional development and active involvement in the shap-
