Ilene Isaacs, LMSW, has recently been named as the new director of social work at St. Johnland Nursing Center. She is responsible for managing the social work staff who cares for the residents and families in the 250-bed facility in Kings Park. In this field for over 17 years, Isaacs most recently served as a social worker at Visiting Nurse Service and Hospice of Suffolk after leaving St. Johnland in 2011.

Isaacs is particularly interested in the geriatric population—in supporting residents and their families as individuals make the transition to long term care. She holds a B.A. in sociology and anthropology from Dowling College and an M.A. in social work from Stony Brook University.
