NEW CANAAN, Conn. – New Canaan lawyer Todd Lampert has been elected to succeed Tom Lewis as chairman of the Board of Directors of Waveny LifeCare Network, which provides comprehensive healthcare for older adults in town.
In addition, Tom Ferguson and Kathryn Tohir have been elected board vice chair and secretary, while John Zaro remains as the board's treasurer.
“A firm commitment to excellence has charted Waveny’s course for 40 years,” said Lampert. “It’s an honor to lead an organization that’s constantly moving forward with confidence, vision and a great sense of purpose.”
Lampert, who joined the Waveny board in 2012, saw several landmark initiatives undertaken by the 5-star rated organization throughout his tenure, including the launch of Waveny at Home – Waveny’s home-based companion and homemaker division, the introduction of advanced Wound VAC, IV and respiratory therapies at Waveny Care Center, the creation of expanded couples suites at both The Village and The Inn, collaboration with Staying Put in New Canaan, and a comprehensive rebrand.
An attorney for more than 25 years, Lampert brings extensive experience to Waveny’s board. His law practice, Lampert, Toohey & Rucci in New Canaan, has served clients since 1997.
In addition to his law practice, Lampert is also a founder of the Bank of New Canaan – now Bankwell, and currently serves as director and corporate secretary for the bank.
He lives in New Canaan with his wife, Antoinette, and their three children, and is a graduate of the Bridgeport School of Law and the University of Colorado.
“I look forward to leading our strong Board of Directors and working closely with our CEO, Bill Piper and his capable leadership team,” said Lampert. “As a community-based organization, much of Waveny’s success and ability to exceed all industry benchmarks of excellence is due to the community’s support. As we continue to respond to the changing needs and preferences of seniors by diversifying our services and expanding upon our home-based services, we will always continue to put quality first. I am very excited to see what the future holds.”
