Cedarcrest Manor will be getting a new administrator March 3.

Current Administrator Dana Bailey has been promoted by Health Systems Inc., the company that owns both Cedarcrest and Grandview Healthcare Center in Washington.

Bailey told The Missourian that Paula Vawter will start training on Monday as her replacement.

“The only thing I want the family members and staff to know is that we are having someone new come in and training with me,” Bailey said. “At this point, I’m still the administrator.”

Bailey has been with Cedarcrest since 1980, the last 13 years as the administrator.

“It’s a slow progression,” she said. “At this point, I’m not sure when I’m leaving.”

Bailey said she is unsure what exactly she will be doing in her new role.

“I will still always be involved with Cedarcrest and Grandview, it’ll just be in a different role,” she said.

Bailey said her eventual departure is the only change going on at Cedarcrest.

“There is just a change in the administrator, nothing else,” she said.
