The Rouse Estate has named a new chief executive.

The Rouse board of directors recently announced Susan Teconchuk as CEO.

Teconchuk comes to the position with more than 25 years of experience in behavioral health care, serving as a program development specialist and later as executive director at Deerfield Behavioral Health of Warren. She most recently was director of contract management and associated director of operations for Journey Health Systems in Bradford.

“We are extremely fortunate to have an executive of Mrs. Teconchuk’s caliber joining the team at the Rouse,” Rouse Estate Board of Directors Chairman Pat Evans said. “She’s a proven leader who understands what it takes to manage an organization of our size and complexity. Her ability to contribute to the care we provide to multiple populations throughout Warren County will be extremely valuable.”

“Teconchuk’s strengths and skills will benefit the Rouse legacy, staff, and those who entrust their care, and the care of their loved ones, to the Rouse Estate,” Warren County Commissioner and Rouse Board Member Ben Kafferlin said. “She knows the Rouse has a strong heritage and a strong team of employees who are passionate about the care they provide. Her leadership and guidance will provide valuable support as the Rouse continues to fulfill the mission of Henry Rouse.”

Teconchuk is a graduate of Sheffield High School and earned a BS degree in Health Policy and Administration from Pennsylvania State University and she holds an MBA from Penn State Behrend College. Teconchuk is also a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives, according to a Thursday release. Teconchuk’s extensive experience in operations, program development, and community engagement will greatly assist the board in its oversight of the Rouse Estate’s growth initiatives and strategic direction.

Teconchuk lives in Warren with her husband Andrew. They have two sons, Tanner and Archie. In her spare time, she enjoys attending her sons’ baseball games, Walleye fishing, and spending time with her two dogs, Audie and Zofia. Her other interests include reading and photography.

“The Rouse Estate, through its array of services and programs, touches peoples’ lives daily,” Teconchuk said. “I am honored to serve the residents, clients, children, staff and community in this role, and be part of the legacy of caring and compassion that is The Rouse Estate.”

“The Rouse looks forward to working with Mrs. Teconchuk as we continue to build an organization focused on delivering the best care to those we serve,” according to the release.
