I GMirMr n r ' ■ - : li'VE NEW!
Our New Administrator!!
Hello, allow me
to introduce myself to
the town of Cuero.
My name is Gabriel
lX a 1 Pallanez and I am the
new administrator of
Cuero Nursing and
I started on May 1st
and have had a great
^experience with the
facility but also the community. Everyone here
has welcomed me with open arms. I grew up in
a small community just like Cuero, which is
probably why I like it here so much.
I am from Midland Texas but grew up in
a small community outside of Greenwood. I
graduated from Texas Tech with an Exercise
Sports Science Degree and a minor in Food and
Nutrition. After passing my administrator test in
April I was given the chance to join the team at
Cuero Nursing and Rehabilitation. I am truly
blessed to be working in Cuero with a great op-
portunity to contribute to the community.
Please come by the facility and take a
look at the new renovations and see what we
have to offer. I would love to meet you!
