Aaron Polanski, LNHA, administrator at The McGuire Group’s Autumn View Health Care Facility in Hamburg, is a recipient of the 2018 Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award presented by the American College of Health Care Administrators, ACHCA. He will be recognized at the ACHCA’s 52nd annual convocation and exposition on April 24.

The award was introduced in 2008 by one of ACHCA’s most revered leaders, the late Eli Pick, and seeks to identify high-performing skilled nursing facilities and the leaders who make them excel. The award is a distinction of significance, as only 11-percent of the facilities nationwide qualify. Likewise, of the more than 550 nursing homes in New York State, only 221 qualified.

Polanski has been with the company since 2011 holding roles as administrator at Seneca Health Care Center and his current position at Autumn View where he is responsible for the overall operation of the facility. He resides in Hamburg.

The ACHCA’s awards program uses data-driven criteria collected by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, CMS, and includes MDS quality indicators, occupancy information and three years of survey data to identify the top performing facilities.  Some of the quality measures evaluated include pain, pressure ulcers, psychotropic medications, urinary tract infections and hospital readmission rates.

Autumn View Health Care Facility provides subacute and outpatient rehabilitation, skilled nursing care, Journeys palliative care and respite/short-term care. The facility continuously receives 5-star ratings from the federal government and finished in the first quintile of NY State’s quality benchmarking pool for 5 out of 5 years.
