A St. Louis native and graduate of Mehlville High School recently was named administrator of the Friendship Village Sunset Hills, or FVSH, Village Care Center.

Stacey Zerban comes to the skilled nursing entity of the FVSH senior living retirement community after about two years as chief executive office at a community under the Ascension Health Senior Care umbrella, where she met James T. “Terry” Walsh, the new FVSH executive director, who recruited her.

Carefully chosen for the position, Zerban was brought in by Walsh, who as FVSH executive director oversees the Village Care Center, Fountain View Assisted Living and independent living at the senior living community.

Before FVSH, Walsh, a retired Army colonel, worked as chief operating officer at Ascension Health Senior Care.

Zerban is a recipient of the Future Leader in Health Care Award for the state of Missouri from the American Health Care Association

Previously, she worked in both for-profit and not-for-profit senior living communities. In her most recent experience as chief executive officer at Ascension’s Alexian Brothers, Lansdowne Village, she said she sought to serve a community and an impoverished area.

In 1995, she graduated from Missouri State University, Springfield, with a bachelor of science degree in communications disorders. Before that, she spent two years studying at Lindenwood University, St. Charles.

Zerban said she had always known that she wanted to work in geriatric care and committed to do whatever it took to get started. With a mother who was a longtime director of nursing and a state surveyor for the St. Louis office of the state Division of Health and Senior Services, Zerban said she spent many school breaks observing her mother’s work and realizing that she felt an affinity for the elderly.

Known as a place that lives up to its name and for independent living in south county, FVSH benefits from the Village Care Center as its hidden gem within the community. As head of that care center, Zerban will oversee the 118-bed center and more than 100 staff at the state-rated five-star skilled nursing community.
