Tanya (Baldree) Mazzolini, a 27-year associate of Life Care Centers of America, has been promoted to vice president of accounting for the company, moving up from the position of director of corporate accounting.

The announcement is made by Beecher Hunter, president, who said Ms. Mazzolini’s “professional skills, her can-do spirit, and her proven leadership made her advancement to the VP level an easy call.”

Recommendation for the promotion was made by Steve Ziegler, chief financial officer, and Terry Henry, senior vice president of accounting.

“Tanya is a highly intelligent individual with a broad knowledge of accounting principles and an understanding of the importance of the business function in fulfillment of our mission,” Mr. Ziegler said. “Beyond statistics and ledgers, however, Tanya has a heart that beats for people, demonstrated by her mission trips and the strategic role she plays for our local United Way.”

Mr. Henry, to whom Ms. Mazzolini will continue to report, praised her value to the organization: “Tanya’s technical and organizational skills, coupled with her leadership and training abilities, have resulted in a highly efficient and accomplished corporate accounting department. I have had the pleasure of working with her for 26 years, and during that time have watched her emerge as a highly engaged and competent leader, both within Life Care and in the community.”

Ms. Mazzolini said she is “very pleased to serve any way I can. I am excited about this new opportunity, and being able to help Life Care complete its mission, which is to provide the best care to our residents. Although I don’t do clinical care, I can play a part by being a good supporter of the people who do give direct care.”

A 1984 graduate of Lee University, with a B.S. degree in accounting, Ms. Mazzolini joined Life Care in May 1985 as a staff accountant and worked her way up. She presently supervises a staff of 11 accountants and accounts-payable specialists in preparation of 500-plus entity consolidation, financial reports, and analysis, as well as preparation of general ledger and corporate financial statements. She also supervises and coordinates yearly financial audits with outside auditors, and works with Information Technology in systems development, conversions and implementation.

Her outside interests include United Way, the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, the Alzheimer’s Association and Barnard Astronomical Society. She was the 2012 ambassador to Peru for Samaritan’s Purse’s Operation Christmas Child.

Ms. Mazzolini and her husband, Dr. Michael Mazzolini, reside in Cleveland. They have four children, with spouses’ names listed in parentheses: Katherine Longwith, Adam (and Heather) Mazzolini, Tina (and Ben) Doty, and Tim (and Michelle) Mazzolini; and eight grandchildren.

Life Care Centers of America operates or manages about 225 skilled nursing facilities in 28 states, with corporate headquarters in Cleveland, Tn.
