President and CEO Steven H. Landers, MD, MPH, To Step Down

Former President and CEO Lou Woolf to serve as interim CEO during search for successor.

After leading Hebrew SeniorLife for nearly a year, President and CEO Steven H. Landers, MD, MPH, is stepping down for personal reasons. It became evident that a relocation to Boston from New Jersey was not the best option for his family at this time. His last day will be May 17, 2024.

During his tenure, Landers led Hebrew SeniorLife in executing its strategic vision and ensuring its commitment to providing superior senior living, health care, research, and teaching to empower the lives of older adults.

Former President and CEO Lou Woolf, who led Hebrew SeniorLife for 14 years, has agreed to serve as interim president and CEO and support the senior leadership team while the Board conducts a search for Landers’ successor.

Hebrew SeniorLife is in a strong strategic, operational, and financial position with a committed Board and an experienced team of senior leaders who will ensure a smooth transition and propel Hebrew SeniorLife forward.
