ACHCA recognizes top-performing skilled nursing facilities across the country through its Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award. Eleven percent of facilities nationwide qualify for this distinction; this year, 1,717 facilities met the selection criteria.

“It is an honor to be acknowledged for our commitment to provide quality services to older adults in our community,” said Hebrew Home of Greater Washington Administrator Neal White. “Our team strives to create healing and meaningful experiences for those we serve, and we are humbled by the recognition of our high standards and thoughtful approach to care.”

The Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award was introduced in 2008. The award program uses data-driven criteria to objectively identify high-performing skilled nursing facilities and the leaders who make them excel. The awards will be presented during the ACHCA 52nd Annual Convocation and Exposition in Orlando, Fla., April 21-24, 2018.
