Senior Living Industry Veteran Brings a Wealth of Knowledge to the Newest Belmont Village Community
Belmont Village Senior Living, an award-winning senior housing developer and operator, announces the appointment of Jorge Noriega to executive director of Belmont Village Senior Living Coral Gables, an unprecedented venture with renowned healthcare organization Baptist Health South Florida slated to open in September.
A native of Mexico City, Noriega joins with the knowledge and experience of serving in a multitude of roles in the senior living industry. He earned his bachelor’s degree in hospitality administration from Boston University and MBA from Ross School of Business, and after serving in various roles in operations for a large hotel operations company, which focused on quality and service optimization, he transitioned to hotel development and asset management.
Having oversight of multiple hotels, and spearheading operations and administrative support, Noriega joined Belmont Village Senior Living in 2016 where he oversaw various initiatives to the development, administrative and investment side of Belmont Village Santa Fe, the company’s first international community located in Mexico City. While there, he led the campus which included a medical office building, hotel, retail, and Belmont Village Senior Living community. In 2020, he was appointed as the executive director of Belmont Village Senior Living Santa Fe and later served in an administrative role at Belmont Village Senior Living La Jolla.
“We are privileged to welcome Jorge to our soon-to-open Coral Gables community. The depth and breadth of knowledge in quality care combined with his personal mission to honor seniors, makes Jorge the ideal person to lead the community,” said Patricia Will, Founder and CEO of Belmont Village Senior Living. “Jorge is a proven, hands-on, well-respected leader within our organization. He brings an unmatched level of clinical knowledge while still understanding the bigger picture and never losing sight of our commitment to providing exceptional care to our communities and residents in Coral Gables.”
In his role as executive director, Noriega will be in charge of new advancements in resident services and programming, community relations, and oversight of staff and development at Belmont Village Senior Living Coral Gables.
“I am honored to join as executive director at Belmont Village Coral Gables at such an exciting time for the company as it opens its first community in collaboration with the renowned Baptist Health South Florida,” said Noriega. “My plan is to provide the best-in-class service in care, comfort and hospitality to our residents, while leading Belmont Village Coral Gables to becoming the premier residential senior community in the Miami area.”
