Payson Care Center names new director of nursing

Jaden Rosser

Since relocating to Payson, he worked at Payson Regional Medical Center while attending school. In 2011 Rosser came to work for the Payson Care Center as the assistant director of nursing. He was quickly promoted due to his ability to lead by example and take responsibility for Payson Care Center’s commitment to quality of care. His success is attributed to his desire to see other people achieve their work performance goals. Working side by side with Payson Care Center’s full-time onsite physician, Dr. Terrance Rousseau, Rosser and his team of nurses and CNAs are able to outperform other skilled nursing facilities because of the onsite physician and the “Ready, Set, Go” therapy programs.

Rosser’s story is an inspiration to all young people seeking careers in the health care industry. He completed school and worked full-time while supporting a young family. He says he does not believe in luck, he believes in making good choices.
