Windsor Gardens Care Center of Fullerton announced today that its’ administrator, Brian Rougeux, has been awarded the Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award by the American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA).
The Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award was established in 2008 by one of ACHCA’s leaders, the late Eli Pick, to recognize the administrators of top-performing skilled nursing facilities (SNFs). Based on the premise that facility excellence reflects leadership excellence, this award recognizes the administrator of record who provided such leadership for the full 2019 calendar year.
Eligibility for this award is based on three years of SNF survey data, including the Health, Fire Safety, and Complaint Surveys, as well as top quartile performance on designated Quality Measures. The criteria also include at least an 80% or greater facility occupancy and a three-year avoidance of a Special Focus Facility status. Fewer than 7% of facilities nationwide qualify for the award.
“After 30 years in the long-term care industry, I am humbled to receive the Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award,” says Rougeux. “However, while I am honored to be recognized by the ACHCA for my leadership, it takes a hard-working dedicated team to provide the level of care for which Windsor Fullerton has been recognized. I would like to thank our amazing staff for all they contribute that made receiving this award possible.”
Windsor Fullerton and Brian Rougeux are scheduled to receive the award at the ACHCA’s Annual Convocation and Exposition in New Orleans, Louisiana scheduled for August 30-September 2, 2020.
