Joshua first saw the need for a nursing and rehabilitation center for the Lower Cape/Mid Cape community in the mid-1980s. In 1984 he had filed for a determination of need for the facility that is now the Pleasant Bay Nursing & Rehabilitation Center. It took eight years of overcoming a variety of regulatory, financing and logistical hurdles before Pleasant Bay first opened in February of 1995.
Prior to developing Pleasant Bay, Joshua was assistant administrator for the North Jersey Nursing Center. He did the coursework for his Nursing Home Administrator's license at the Jewish Hospital for the Aged in New York City.
Prior to entering the health care field, Joshua learned the businesses of large-scale construction and facilities planning as a supervisor for two large general contracting companies in the New York area—including a contractor who renovated two historic buildings into housing for the elderly.
He is a graduate of the New School for Social Research in New York. At Harvard University Graduate School of Design, Joshua continues his education with courses emphasizing housing and health care environments for the aging.
