The American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA) honored Gretchen Aichele, Administrator of Lincoln Crawford Care Center in Cincinnati, Ohio with the 2017 Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award. The leadership award was celebrated during the awards luncheon at ACHCA’s 51st Annual Convocation and Exposition in St. Louis, Missouri on Tuesday, April 4, 2017. Fewer than 9% of facilities nationwide qualify. This year, 1,288 facilities met the selection criteria. Two hundred and six administrators were awarded the facility leadership award nationally.
Based on the premise that facility excellence reflects 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 includes 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 ABILITY Network.
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. "It is very humbling to receive this award from my peers.
