The American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA) honored Tara Gibney, Administrator of Pilgrim Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center in Peabody, Massachusetts as a recipient of the ACHCA Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award. The award, named in memory of visionary ACHCA member Eli Pick, recognizes administrators whose teams have achieved dimensions of organizational quality that few others have been able to reach.
“While I’m honored to receive this recognition, I am fully aware that the results we have achieved at Pilgrim Rehab are due to the hard work and dedication of every single team member here,” said Ms. Gibney. “I’m grateful to have the opportunity to work with such a committed team of individuals who consistently strive to provide quality care to our patients each and every day.”
Fewer than 7% of facilities nationwide qualified, and Ms. Gibney was one of 44 recipients in Massachusetts who received the Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award. This award recognizes the administrator 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.
Congratulations to Tara, we are honored to have you lead our team!
