“I am honored to serve the Orleans County community once again,” Reiner said. “I am very committed to enhancing our community’s knowledge on the hospice services we provide and helping to bridge the gap of care for the terminally ill residents of Orleans County.”

Reiner has worked simultaneously in both the healthcare and technology space for the last decade. He has held positions with tech companies and chiropractic wellness centers, as well as running his own private practice.

He worked and interned for Roswell Park Cancer Institute, providing oncology massage as well as end-of-life care, which has grown to be a big part of his life. He has also worked for a global technology distributor providing market development services to thousands of information technology vendors and clients from all over the country.

He also is a seasoned marketing and business development professional with an adaptive disposition in the technology and healthcare industry.
