Alexandra LaMothe, RN, FNP-BC, NHA, administrator at Brookhaven Health Care Facility in East Patchogue, is a recipient of the 2019 Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award presented by the American College of Health Care Administrators, ACHCA. She will be recognized at the ACHCA’s 53rd annual convocation and exposition in March.
The award was introduced 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 7-percent of the facilities nationwide qualify.
Mrs. LaMothe is responsible for planning, developing, organizing, directing and implementing the day-to-day functions of the facility, its programs and activities in accordance with federal, state and local standards, guidelines and regulations. Prior to her appointment, she worked as a nurse practitioner at the facility. She resides in Smithtown.
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.
Brookhaven Health Care Facility provides subacute and outpatient rehabilitation, skilled nursing care, palliative care and respite/short-term care. The facility continuously receives five-star ratings from the federal government and finished in the first quintile of NY State’s quality benchmarking pool for five out of five years. It is pleased to be affiliated with Long Island Community Hospital. For more information visit www.brookhavenhealthcarefacility.com.
