YONKERS, N.Y. -- Lisa Poskanzer, of Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center in Yonkers, recently received an honor from the American College of Health Care Administrators.
The ACHCA honored Poskanzer, vice president of operations at Seton, with the 2014 Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award. Poskanzer was also the recipient of the 2011 Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award, according to a press release. The leadership award was celebrated during an awards luncheon at ACHCA’s 48th Annual Convocation and Exposition in Las Vegas as 276 administrators were awarded leadership awards nationally, 42 of which were at the awards luncheon.
Poskanzer was one of 234 receipts who received the Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award, according to the release.
"Based on the premise that facility excellence is a reflection of leadership excellence, this award recognizes the administrator of record who provided that leadership throughout the award year," representatives said in the release. "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 award is made possible with the support of eHealth Data Solutions, according to the release.
“I am so honored to have received this award from the ACHCA for the second time,” said Poskanzer. “I believe that this award could not be possible without the dedication and commitment to the quality of care that our entire staff provides to the residents of the Pediatric Center each and every day.”
