Windemere Receives Top Award for Leadership & Quality

Windemere Nursing & Rehabilitation Center is pleased to announce that the American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA) has identified Windemere as a top performing long-term care organization. The Windemere team will be recognized with a Facility Leadership Award by the American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA) at the 45th Annual Convocation and Exposition to be held in New Orleans in May 2011. The award recognizes achievement for a level of performance related to selected measurements of organizational quality.

Owing to implementation of established standards of quality criteria and through demonstrated measures of clinical achievement, compliance excellence, outstanding service and quality care delivered to our residents and their families, Windemere has reached a universally recognized state of outstanding quality as a long-term care organization “Ken [Chisholm]’s exceptional leadership capabilities include an amazing ability to identify areas needing improvement, create an action plan together with his care giving team, and then to swiftly implement those needed changes,” says Timothy J. Walsh, president & CEO of Martha’s Vineyard Hospital. “Given Windemere’s past difficulties, this achievement is nothing short of amazing.”

To identify those top-performing organizations whose administrators are eligible for the Facility Leadership Award, eHealth Data Solutions, a long term care data and information company based in Cleveland, Ohio, analyzed national, publicly available MDS and Survey data from CMS and proceeded to rank organizations within each state. Based on this analysis, Windemere Nursing & Rehabilitation Center was identified as a top-performing organization and Mr. Chisholm has been selected to receive this leadership recognition on behalf of Windemere.

Opened in 1995, Windemere Nursing & Rehabilitation Center is a 74-bed facility offering both private and semi-private rooms. The center includes a 21-bed dementia care unit, 40-bed skilled nursing & rehabilitation unit and a 13-bed residential living wing.
