FARMINGTON — The American College of Health Care Administrators announced that Carol Timberlake, FACHCA, administrator of Orchard Park Rehabilitation and Living Center in Farmington, is a 2015 recipient of the ACHCA Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award.

The award, named in memory of ACHCA member Eli Pick, recognizes administrators whose teams have achieved dimensions of organizational quality that few others have been able to reach. Only 257 administrators were awarded leadership awards nationally.

Timberlake was one of 227 recipients who received the Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award with virtual recognition. 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 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 percent 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.
