DEPARTMENT DIRECTORY

 

Administrator:

Angela Wells RN, HSN, NHA
Angela has twenty-five years of experience in the healthcare industry. She obtained her Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Nursing at Thomas Jefferson University and has held a variety of nursing leadership positions in the fields of education, reimbursement, and management. After serving as a Director of Nursing for several years,
she obtained licensure in 2014 as a nursing home administrator and subsequently transitioned to her
current role. Angela is a results-driven leader who strives to raise the bar for her staff while constantly

ensuring they have the resources necessary to meet and exceed those goals. Furthermore, her root-
cause approach to problem solving allows her to effectively and efficiently manage both her staff and the

facility. Angela also places strong value on the quality of life for those who reside in Skilled Nursing
Facilities, and she roots her nursing philosophy in the Eden Alternative’s seventh principle: “Medical care
should be the servant of genuine human kindness. Never its master.”

 

Assistant Administrator:

Amy Pierce MS, NHA
As Assistant Administrator, Amy works closely with the Administrator to ensure that the
daily operations of Bala run as smoothly as possible. Plus, she is a piece of Bala history because she

was present to admit the very first resident twenty-nine years ago. Before this, however, Amy
earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Behavioral Communications from the Annenberg School for
Communication of the University of Pennsylvania, and then went on to complete her Master of
Science degree in Human Services Management with a specialty in Healthcare Administration at
Drexel University. She also served as a researcher and later a project manager for NIH and NIMH
research projects, conducting studies of the physical and psychological effects on caregivers to the
elderly. She opened the doors of Bala in 1989 and has been a licensed administrator since 1992.
Amy is thrilled by the challenge that no two days at Bala are ever the same, and she finds great joy in
working with the residents.
