The mission of WCNH has changed over the years based on the needs of the community it serves.

A home-like, cheerful and positive atmosphere created by a caring and professional staff makes it the facility of choice for Wayne County.

In addition to utilizing the services Finger Lakes Works offers, WCNH Administrator, Cathie Chabrier is the Chairperson for the Image and Pipeline Work Group for the Healthcare Alliance of the Finger Lakes. The Healthcare Alliance, supported by the FLWIB,is a consortium of regional healthcare providers whose focus is the development and retention of a high quality workforce.  Cathie’s leadership has been critical in the success of the group’s annual “Service Community Healthcare Career Day in the Finger Lakes”.  This career exploration event hosts an average of over 250 high school students from 15 different school districts.

“Cathie’s dedication and passion for educating students, their parents, teachers and guidance counselors about the opportunities in the Healthcare Industry is overwhelming.” Says Karen Springmeier Executive Director of the FLWIB.  “We are very fortunate to have such a strong advocate working on developing the “pipeline” of healthcare workers the industry so desperately needs.”
