Hebrew SeniorLife created the word ReAge to reflect the breadth and depth of services we offer: providing world-class health care; building innovative senior communities; funding groundbreaking research; and teaching future generations of geriatricians.
ReAge, a combination of “redefine” and “aging,” means to question everything about the aging process. Through ReAging, we are challenging conventions in order to create and implement new standard-of-care approaches that will positively impact the lives of older adults.
Len Fishman, CEO of Hebrew SeniorLife since 2000, is credited with leading HSL's transformation from a long-term care organization to trailblazing integrated health care and housing system, serving seniors of all faiths and incomes, increasingly in community-based settings. Mr. Fishman has also emphasized HSL's role as a national leader in geriatric research and teaching. Mr. Fishman has broad experience in the fields of health-care and senior services. He served in the cabinet of New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman as commissioner of Health and Senior Services and was president of the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (AAHSA), the 6,000-member national organization of nonprofit long-term care and senior housing providers.
