Albany – Diane Hood has been selected to serve as the next Executive Director at Mennonite Village. Diane was chosen from a selection of candidates by the Mennonite Services Northwest and Mennonite Village Board of Directors. Diane had served as the interim executive director for nearly a year.

“We were impressed with her broad experience, depth of understanding of the needs of Mennonite Village and vision for the campus,” said Will Barnhart, chair of the Mennonite Services Northwest Board. “She has a high degree of enthusiasm for the future of MV and brings a desire to carry on the legacy and values upheld by the organization.”

Diane has a Bachelor of Arts degree in management from University of Oregon and a post-baccalaureate certificate in accounting from Portland State University. She is also a licensed CPA. She has over 35 years’ experience in management, finance, and accounting, including the last 30 years in senior living management and consulting.

“When I took the interim job, I had not planned to become a candidate for the full-time position,” Diane shared. “But after being here about eleven months, I have come to love this place, the people that live and work here, and the entire wonderful organization of Mennonite Village.”

“For the Board Chairs, the Board members, and the search committee, seeing her perform in the interim role made it an easy decision to select her for the position over other candidates,” said Brett Tieszen, chair of the Mennonite Village Board. “We are grateful for the insightful, compassionate, and excellent leadership Diane provided over the past eleven months.”

Mennonite Village is one of Oregon’s largest continuing care retirement communities offering independent, assisted, skilled nursing and rehabilitation, and memory care living options. Established in 1947, Mennonite Village employs more than 300 staff and is home for 500 residents.
