The McGuire Group’s five Western New York Facilities are the recipients of the 2018 Eli Pick Facility Leadership Awards presented by the American College of Health Care Administrators, ACHCA.

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.

The McGuire Group’s facilities include: Autumn View Health Care Facility in Hamburg, Garden Gate Health Care Facility in Cheektowaga, Harris Hill Nursing Facility in Williamsville, Northgate Health Care Facility in North Tonawanda and Seneca Health Care Center in West Seneca. The McGuire Group’s administrators will accept the awards on behalf of their facilities in April.

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.

The McGuire Group facilities offer subacute and outpatient rehabilitation, skilled nursing care, memory care, palliative and hospice care, and respite/short-term care. The facilities continuously receive 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.
