RUMFORD — Rumford Community Home administrator Jeffrey Lacroix, LNHA, received the 2017 New Administrator Award from the American College of Health Care Administrators. Lacroix was presented the award at the group’s annual convocation and exposition in St. Louis, Missouri.

The award recognizes a member who has been a practicing administrator for five years or less and who has demonstrated exceptional commitment and potential as a leader, innovator and motivator in long-term care and in the American College of Health Care Administrators.

Lacroix entered the long-term care industry as an activity assistant and quickly noticed the organized chaotic nature of the industry. After a year and a half as an activity assistant, he entered into an administrator-in-training program and was assigned to lead Rumford Community Home. 

Lacroix is president of Maine’s American College of Health Care Administrators chapter.
