Keri Linardi, RN joins RVNA as Chief Clinical Officer https://news.hamlethub.com/lewisboro/neighbors/1812-keri-linardi-rn-joins-rvna-as-chief-clinical-officer1812-keri-linardi-rn-joins-rvna-as-chief-clinical-officer https://news.hamlethub.com/lewisboro/neighbors/1812-keri-linardi-rn-joins-rvna-as-chief-clinical-officer1812-keri-linardi-rn-joins-rvna-as-chief-clinical-officer

Ridgefield, CT – RVNA, the Ridgefield Visiting Nurse Association, is delighted to announce that Keri Linardi, RN, BSN, PHN, CHPCA has assumed the position of Chief Clinical Officer (CCO). In this role, Linardi will have oversight of all RVNA clinical service lines — In-Home Health Care, Rehabilitation, Hospice, and Community Health and Wellness — as well as the Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement team. Linardi is a seasoned clinical executive and practitioner with experience managing multi-functional teams at large home health and hospice organizations. 

Linardi received a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from Mount Saint Mary’s University in Los Angeles and has worked in health care for over two decades, most recently as Vice President of Hospice at VNA Health Group in New Jersey where she specialized in palliative and end-of-life care. Prior to joining RVNA as CCO, Linardi, a certified hospice and palliative care administrator supported RVNA’s Hospice accreditation process as an expert consultant. 

Following graduation from nursing school, Linardi began work as a Home Health case manager in Compton and Watts in Los Angeles County. Since then -- with the exception of four years working in women’s health in the hospital setting -- Linardi has spent her entire career in community nursing. She has worked as a homecare and hospice liaison; an on-call night nurse for hospice in the community; and an inpatient hospice nurse and community hospice case manager in California, New York, and New Jersey. 

“Keri Linardi is already a tremendous asset to RVNA,” says Theresa Santoro, MSN, RN, CHCA, President and CEO of RVNA. “She brings strong management and vision, plus true hands-on clinical experience that benefits all of our service lines. Keri also has a deep sensitivity to patients and their families, a sensibility which reflects RVNA’s approach and drives the quality and the consistency of our care. The CCO role is critical to RVNA’s success, and we are thrilled to have Keri onboard.” 

“I am impressed with the authenticity of RVNA’s mission and by the strong integration of RVNA’s individual and community care across services that serve a lifetime,” says Linardi. “Being invited into patient and family homes – and lives -- is a privilege that RVNA takes very seriously and I look forward to helping the team remain strong, reliable, and poised for ongoing progress and growth. RVNA has an excellent reputation in the communities we serve, and I am proud to be a part of the team.” 

Originally from Massachusetts, Linardi lived in California for over 20 years and now resides in Stony Point, New York. She has three children, ages 22,18, and13. Linardi serves as a leadership mentor to inner-city youth through Mentored and, when time permits, enjoys the occasional beach vacation. 

Linardi began her role with RVNA on January 7, 2019 and is based out of the RVNA Center for Exceptional Care in Ridgefield, CT. 

About RVNA 

Founded in 1914, RVNA is an accredited non-profit Medicare-certified home healthcare agency that also supports public health and safety, and promotes the highest quality of life.

In recognition of Black History Month, John Jay Homestead State Historic Site will be offering special thematic tours that examine the history of slavery in New York and in the Jay Family. The story of the Jay family, their slaves, and the way the generations of the Jays acted in response to slavery is complex. The glimpses into the past that these stories give can be a springboard toward developing a deeper understanding of the people who are part of the story.

Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 2:00 PM
“The great majority, or rather the great body, of our people had been so long accustomed to the practice and convenience of having slaves…” 
John Jay, 1788

Admission: $10 for adults; $7 for seniors and students, children under 12 and members of Friends of John Jay Homestead are admitted for free.

John Jay’s son William became one of America’s most important abolitionists. A year after his death in 1858, his fellow abolitionist, Frederick Douglass, delivered this twenty-four page eulogy to honor him.

Enjoy a great night out – meet international, multi-platinum recording artist Patrizio Buanne, feast on a special prix-fixe dinner at TerraSole Ristorante (3 Big Shop Lane, Ridgefield), then head over to The Ridgefield Playhouse for Patrizio’s performance – all for $110 per person (includes ticket to the show, does not include alcohol or gratuity). Known to many as “the Italian Michael Bublé,” Neapolitan pop crooner Patrizio Buanne is touring in support of his new album, Italianissimo, and will return to The Ridgefield Playhouse on Friday, February 8 at 8pm, part of the Ridgefield Magazine Broadway and Cabaret Series and the World Music Series. Buanne has made a mark on the US album charts with his first four CDs of Italian standards and has been dubbed “The Ambassador of Dolce Vita!” Media partner for this event is WICC 600.

On PBS stations around the country and on concert stages around the world, Patrizio Buanne has seduced audiences with his smooth, romantic vocals, a style that has been described as “Julio Iglesias meets Tom Jones.” On best-selling albums like The Italian and Viva la Dolce Vita, Buanne has created a disarming repertoire that incorporates original songs (“Forever Begins Tonight,” “Un Angelo”) and American pop with traditional Italian tunes and Neapolitan favorites like “Il Mondo,” “Mambo Italiano,” “Oh Marie,” and “That’s Amore.” He has sold over 10 million albums worldwide in the last 10 years. Like Chris Botti, Celine Dion, Julio Iglesias or Tom Jones, Buanne is searching for that same, timeless quality in a song that conveys sentiments in a credible way. Buanne interprets these beautiful songs with his own romantic, uniquely European approach. Buanne’s fifth album, Italianissimo, features classic songs such as “Ti Amo,” “Oh Marie,” “Volare,” and “Caruso,” as well as original songs with a timeless slant such as “Only Your Love Takes Me Home“ and “Brand New Word for Sexy.”

“I’m not just a Neapolitan guy singing Italian songs. Yes, It’s important to give people the kind of music I am known for, but I also wanted to open myself up artistically and give them something else or rather something ‘more of me.’ I want to present my passion for interpreting any great song --- no matter if Italian, American or new,” states Buanne.

For tickets ($45-$110) call or visit the box office, 203-438-5795 or go online at ridgefieldplayhouse.org.  The Ridgefield Playhouse is a non-profit performing arts center located at 80 East Ridge, parallel to Main Street, Ridgefield, CT.

Will spring come early this year? According to folklore, the answer depends on a burrow-loving rodent named Phil and the weather conditions on February 2, "Groundhog Day".

Early spring? Phil spoke to the man in the black top hat (and all of us) early this morning and he says "YES!" Groundhog Phil did NOT see his shadow in the small and legendary town of Punxsutawney, Pa.

Perhaps we can dig out our flipflops sooner than expected - or, maybe not. According to reports, in the past decade, Phil has predicted a longer winter seven times and an early spring three times. He was only right about 40% of the time, this information comes courtesy National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (not a great track record for Phil).
