Marilyn Cameron Recieves Award
The American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA) honored Marilyn Cameron, Health Services Administrator at Westminster Woods on Julington Creek, with the 2020 Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award.
Based on the premise that facility excellence reflects leadership excellence, this award recognizes Cameron for providing such leadership for the full 2019 calendar year. Eligibility for this award is based on three years of skilled nursing facility 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. This prestigious award is made possible with the support of ABILITY® Network Inc. Cameron is one of only 78 administrators throughout the United States to be recognized with the Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award.
“This award is truly a team accomplishment and a testament to all of the Westminster Woods skilled nursing employees’ commitment to caring for the senior population. It is a facility award and should have everyone’s name on it!” Cameron said.
Brian Tenney, Executive Director at Westminster Woods on Julington Creek, congratulated Cameron on this recognition. “We are proud of Marilyn and her team for this great accomplishment. We are fortunate to have Marilyn as our Administrator for more than 8 years. Our results are reflective of Marilyn’s consistent and compassionate leadership.”
The Facility Leadership Award was introduced in 2008 by one of ACHCA’s most revered leaders, the late Eli Pick. A former executive director of the Ballard Rehabilitation Center, Des Plaines, IL for over 30 years, Eli embodied excellence as an Administrator that cared for his residents, their families, and his community. This award is presented annually in memory of Eli, a consummate member of ACHCA, dedicated to advancing professionalism and leadership in long term care.
