WesleyLife Announces Key Leadership Hire

JOHNSTON, IOWA–WesleyLife, Iowa’s most comprehensive provider of services for older adults, has announced the addition to its leadership roster of an administrator with a breadth of specialized experience that will help drive the organization’s growth strategy as it expands into a new market.

Amber Wentz joins WesleyLife—celebrating its 72nd anniversary this year—as Vice President of Information Solutions, a role that further aligns technological strategy and processes and positions the organization to help increasing numbers of individuals live lives of purpose, meaning, and enhanced health and well-being.

“I’m thrilled that we’re bringing to the table someone with Amber’s unique skill set; she provides not only extensive and relevant experience, but also adds energy, focus, and passion to our mission,” said Rob Kretzinger, CEO of WesleyLife.

“As increasing numbers of individuals seek our services, we’re called to support their well-being by creating programs and services that don’t stop at our walls, and that weave through all we do to help those we serve live as healthily as they can, as long as they can. Amber’s experience and vision, paired with the talents of a strong, dedicated, and talented executive team, will keep us well poised to meet the challenges before us.”

Wentz comes to WesleyLife from MercyOne Newton—formerly Skiff Medical Center—where, as a Senior Director, she was responsible for all aspects of information technology. In addition to serving as a senior leader the past seven years, Amber’s unique background has involved positions as a registered nurse with a master’s degree in nursing—and her degree also includes an Informatics specialization from Walden University.

Her combined understanding of nursing and informatics creates a unique qualification to serve WesleyLife team members, residents, clients, and participants. Wentz joined WesleyLife on May 20, and can be reached at .
