WARWICK – Saint Elizabeth Community President and CEO Steven J. Horowitz is retiring, effective June 26, 2020, the nonprofit announced on Monday.

Horowitz has worked with the elder-care organization for over 35 years. He was appointed to his current role in 1998.

“It has been a great privilege to work with so many talented, dedicated and caring people over the past 35 years in bringing innovative solutions to meet the needs of our patients and residents,” said Horowitz. “I’m very proud of what we’ve accomplished in building Saint Elizabeth Community into such a well-respected organization. We have always put the elders first in everything we’ve done and that has been the hallmark of our success.”
