Ben Hanson

Director of Nursing

Ben joined the Pomeroy Living family in 2020 as the Director of Nursing for Rochester Skilled. He has been a registered nurse for 9 years and has been working in long term care for the past 7 years. According to Ben, “I took a CNA course to see how the nursing field might fit, and I haven’t looked back since!” He feels that long term care has always been an underserved sector in the medical industry, but has the most opportunity for innovation to make facility life more fun/engaging for the residents and staff.

He is in current pursuit of his Masters’ degree is nursing with a goal to become a Nurse Practitioner. He is a Board-Certified Infection Preventionist and has been instrumental in developing policies and procedures throughout the COVID pandemic.
