Rosemary McLaughlin, a senior vice president with Signature Bank, has been named chair of United Hebrew of New Rochelle’s board of directors.

In her new role, McLaughlin will help to ensure the organization’s leadership position in senior care and maintain its nonprofit mission to provide quality care to seniors in need. 

McLaughlin grew up down the street from the original building.

“United Hebrew was always a good neighbor, a community institution,” she said. “My mother lived in United Hebrew’s assisted living facility and nursing home and we couldn’t have been happier with her care.”

Since then, McLaughlin has provided United Hebrew with critical counsel and thoughtful advice on several initiatives, including the 2016 opening of Willow Gardens Memory Care, Westchester’s first assisted living residence dedicated to those with Alzheimer’s and dementia. She also served as the board liaison on the nursing home’s quality assurance and improvement committee.
