The Board of Directors of Villa St. Francis is very pleased to announce the hiring of Rodney Humpal as the next President and CEO of Villa St. Francis, effective January 6, 2023.  As was shared back in November, the Board of Directors was dedicated to hiring “the right next leader for our Villa St. Francis community”.  We feel strongly that after a period of due diligence and discernment that Rodney is that leader.

Many of you might already know Rod, for he has served the last ten months as the Director of Marketing/Community Relations for Villa St Francis.  Like many of you, the Board recognizes Rod’s commitment, passion, and living out of the Villa’s Mission and Felician Franciscan Core Values.

Rod has nine years of professional experience in older adult services.  He principally held positions in business development and marketing in multi-facility organizations.  Those organizations managed senior living communities providing assisted living, memory care, and independent living.  During the seventeen years prior to that, Rod served as a manager for medical diagnostic imaging centers and in sales for medical devices.  The University of Wisconsin awarded Mr. Humpal a Bachelor of Science degree.  He earned the Wisconsin Assisted Living Association certification and holds a license as an Assisted Living Administrator in the State of Wisconsin.

Rodney will be succeeding Michael Ross, who has been serving as the Interim Administrator.  We want to recognize Michael for stepping in during a critical time as we conducted our search for a permanent president.  We are grateful for all the efforts and talents that Michael has brought to the Villa during his time here.  We wish him the very best in his next engagement, which is closer to his home and family in Michigan.

Please also welcome Dawn Minesal, MSN, RN, as our Director of Nursing.  Dawn has 30 years of Nursing experience, including skilled rehabilitation, assisted living, and memory care.  Dawn has already made a positive impact on the Health Services Department at the Villa.  She has a wealth of skills and knowledge that will certainly be a benefit to all she serves.

Below you will find the contact information for both Rod and Dawn. Also, attached is a flyer for our Resident & Holiday Party on January 12, 2023.  Families and visitors wishing to join your loved one, please sign up for the Holiday Party by January 5, 2023.

Finally, on behalf of the Felician Services Board, we are particularly grateful for your ongoing dedication and support to the Villa St. Francis mission of “continuing the ministry of Jesus by providing person-centered services to meet the contemporary needs of aging individuals and their families.”

With best wishes for all the Blessings of Advent and the Christmas Season,


John Schultze
