On March 18, 2019, The American College of Health Care Administrators presented one of its 2019 Eli Pick Facility Leadership Awards to Thomas Hager, executive director of Life Care Center of Hendersonville, North Carolina.
The award, named in honor of visionary ACHCA member Eli Pick, is based on the criteria ranging from facility census to survey results. It acknowledges administrators who have guided their organizations to a higher level of quality. According to ACHCA, only seven percent of skilled nursing facilities nationwide qualify.
“On behalf of the entire team at Life Care Center of Hendersonville, I am honored to accept this prestigious award from the American College of Health Care Administrators,” said Hager. “The award is a reflection of the entire team's effort to provide excellent care for the residents we serve.”
