Consulate Health Care is proud to announce that two of our executive directors were recipients of ACHCA’s 2019 Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award. The awards were presented on March 18, 2019, to Mary Ann Domingo, Executive Director of Consulate Health Care of Bayonet Point in Hudson, Florida, and Steven Oelfke, Executive Director of Bradenton Health Care in Bradenton, Florida. Both Domingo and Oelfke are two-time winners of this award!

The American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA) presents the honor—named in memory of the late, great, visionary ACHCA member Eli Pick—to administrators whose teams have achieved dimensions of organizational quality that few others have reached. The Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award is a prestigious distinction of significance. This year, only 7% of facilities nationwide qualified.

This award recognizes administrators of record who provided 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.

The ACHCA firmly believes that long-term care facility excellence is a reflection of leadership excellence. Consulate Health Care is delighted to have these talented executive directors on our team!
