The American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA) presented the 2015 annual awards on Tuesday, April 14, 2015, during the awards luncheon at ACHCA’s 49th Annual Convocation and Exposition at The Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas.

Congratulations to ACHCA’s 2015 Award Winners!

The ACHCA Awards program is an opportunity to recognize those with demonstrated contributions and exceptional commitment to ACHCA and the field of post-acute and aging services leadership. The Awards Subcommittee ensures that all ACHCA awards and scholarships have objective eligibility criteria and follow a fair, credible process. Awards are issued at the individual, chapter/district, student, and facility level. Each year, nominees include new and seasoned administrators, members and non-members, business partners, chapters and districts, and other leaders. Facility leadership excellence is recognized through the Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award (EP-FLA). Administrators of high-performing nursing homes are eligible for this award. All approved award candidates are celebrated and honored during the national awards ceremony at ACHCA’s annual Convocation. The Awards Subcommittee looks forward to receiving your nomination!
CC Andrews, 2015 – 2016 Awards Subcommittee Chair
