The leadership award was celebrated during an awards luncheon at ACHCA’s 48th Annual Convocation and Exposition in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday, April 6, 2014. Two hundred and seventy-six administrators were awarded leadership awards nationally, 42 of which were at the awards luncheon. Poskanzer was one of 234 receipts who received the Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award with virtual recognition.
Based on the premise that facility excellence is a reflection of leadership excellence, this award recognizes the administrator of record who provided that leadership throughout the award year. Eligibility for this award is based on three years of skilled nursing facility (SNF) survey data, including the Health, Fire (Life Safety) and Complaint Surveys, as well as top quartile performance on designated Quality Measures. The criteria also included an 80% or greater facility occupancy and a three year avoidance of a Special Focus Facility status. This prestigious award is made possible with the support of eHealth Data Solutions.
“I am so honored to have received this award from the ACHCA for the second time,” said Poskanzer. “I believe that this award could not be possible without the dedication and commitment to the quality of care that our entire staff provides to the residents of the Pediatric Center each and every day.”
This award is in memory of Eli Pick who was a consummate member of ACHCA, dedicated to advancing professionalism and leadership in long term care.
