Auburn Village has a great staff. When you visit or tour Auburn Village, you will have the opportunity to meet members of our leadership and management team. Please make a point to stop-in or introduce yourself while you are visiting our community. Our staff loves to meet the families and friends of our residents and guests.
Starting out in the healthcare industry as an Activity Aide, Tony Hill has since evolved into his role as Administrator of Auburn Village, located in Auburn, IN. Having the opportunity to live overseas in Japan, where he taught English as a second language, Tony gained an understanding of how to meet the needs of a broad spectrum of people, which he now applies to his administrative approach at Auburn Village. According to Tony, experiences such as this one “teach you a lot more about patience, teach you a lot more about what people need to be able to perform the best that they can.”
Tony believes that the team is the number one best thing about the facility, emphasizing that the right people are in the right positions to make real impact in the lives of the people that they care for.
Director of Admissions
One part of what sets Auburn Village apart is our staff’s first-hand experience with both sides of the health care industry. Our admissions director, Kyle Rebman, spends his days helping our newest residents sort through all the paperwork and financial options; he goes about this with great care, given his personal experience with medical procedures and recovery.
A Fort Wayne native, Kyle was born with kidney problems, and received a transplant in 2014. Years of hospitals, surgery and now restored health make his work for Auburn Village’s residents personal. He prepares records for the nursing staff, speaks with hospital representatives, gives tours of the facility, helps newcomers find their ideal roommate and more.
“My path to health care was a little different,” Kyle understated. “I wanted to give back, and be the one who helps those other people get through their struggles.”
He knows from experience the stress that an unexpected diagnosis or complication drops into a family’s life.
“When they come into my office, they don’t know what to do, they’re lost, they’re maybe sleep-deprived,” he said. “And then you see that family again as their loved one is going back home, and they’re completely different people. That puts things in perspective. I may not be a nurse or a specialist, but when that happens, I know I’ve made a difference.”
(By the way, Kyle picked up more than a new kidney – the young lady who made the donation is now Mrs. Rebman!)
