As the Health Care Administrator at Piedmont Crossing, Briggs will oversee day-to-day operations of the 114-bed health care center. “Jan has dedicated the last 22 years of her life serving older adults. Her background in nursing has laid a solid foundation and will serve her well in the role of Administrator.
