Robert Siekert has been named executive director of Life Care Center of Federal Way.

“Robert’s presence, character and compassion for the residents he serves is a perfect fit for Life Care Center of Federal Way,” said Stephanie Bonanzino, vice president of Life Care Centers of America’s Cascades Region, which encompasses nine facilities in Washington. “His experience in the industry offers the ability to continue providing the exceptional customer service and care that our residents deserve through his servant leadership.”

Siekert most recently served as executive director for a skilled nursing facility in Huntsville, Texas, for four years. He grew up as the son of a nursing home employee – his mother was a director of nursing for 25 years – and he appreciates the senior population.

“Seniors have good stories,” said Siekert. “They share a wealth of knowledge and life experiences.”

Originally from Crystal River, Florida, Siekert earned his bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Florida in Gainesville. He currently resides in Tacoma.
