New Administrator joins Dunlap Specialty Care

The staff and residents of Dunlap Specialty Care and Dunlap Assisted Living welcome Brandon Tenge as Administrator.

Tenge is a recent graduate of University of Northern Iowa where he received a dual degree in organizational leadership and gerontology with an emphasis in long-term care.

“I always knew I wanted to work in healthcare,” Tenge says. “When I started college, I needed a job and got hired at Windsor Nursing and Rehab Center in Cedar Falls working in the dietary department. I just fell in love with the residents. Then I learned about the gerontology program at UNI and about the Administrator-in-Training program through Care Initiatives and took advantage of the opportunities.”

Dunlap Specialty Care is a 57-bed skilled nursing facility offering rehabilitation services, skilled nursing care, long term care and hospice care. It is owned and operated by Care Initiatives, Iowa’s largest not-for-profit senior care and hospice care provider.  With headquarters in West Des Moines, Care Initiatives and Care Initiatives Hospice operate 55 skilled nursing, rehabilitation, Alzheimer’s/dementia, assisted living and hospice locations throughout Iowa.
