Jennifer Puleo Receives ACHCA’s Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award

Washington, DC – April 26, 2017 – The American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA) honored Jennifer Puleo, MSRD, LNHA, Administrator of Alaris Health at Cedar Grove in Cedar Grove, New Jersey 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.

Founded in 1962, the American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA) is the only professional association devoted solely to meeting the professional needs of today’s post-acute and aging services leaders. Focused on advancing leadership excellence, ACHCA provides professional education and certification to administrators from across the spectrum of long term care.
