Hyde Park, MA— The American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA) is proud to honor Peter Murfitt, Executive Director of Park Place Rehabilitation & Skilled Care Center as a 2019 recipient of the ACHCA Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award.
The Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award is a distinction of significance. Only 7% of facilities nationwide qualify. This year, 1,130 facilities nationwide met the selection criteria, just 45 of the 397 facilities in Massachusetts will be awarded.
The Facility Leadership Award was introduced by one of ACHCA’s most revered leaders, the late Eli Pick, in 2008. Eli worked with colleague, John Sheridan of eHealth Data Solutions, to develop an awards program that uses data driven criteria to objectively identify high-performing skilled nursing facilities and the leaders who make them excel. Today, Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award recipients are identified using publicly collected data by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), which is pulled and evaluated by an independent third party. Administrators of those high-performing SNFs are celebrated and honored during ACHCA’s national awards ceremony held at the annual Convocation and Exposition each spring.
Specific requirements must be met in order to qualify for this distinction including: no survey (Health, Fire Safety and Complaint) in the past 3 years with a citation above “E” in Scope and Severity, occupancy of at least 80% as defined by CMS Survey report, at least two CMS 4-quarter average QM scores equal to or better than the top quartile for the USA for the following Quality Measures:
“I’m honored to receive this recognition, but the results we have achieved at Park Place Rehabilitation & Skilled Care Center are due to the hard work of every single team member here; from housekeeping to our clinical team,” said Mr. Murfitt.
Park Place Rehabilitation & Skilled Care Center is a full-service skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility providing both short term and long-term care.
