“I am honored and excited to join CoveCare Center. The quality of the care provided by this organization is a reflection of the teamwork and values of the staff, the community partners and the Board of Directors. With CoveCare Center’s 20 years of experience to build upon, I am eager to join this team, to continue to help those in need and to grow our services to meet the needs of the community,” said Mr. Toth.
