East Meadow, NY… Larry Slatky, CNHA, FACHCA, NuHealth’s executive vice president of operations has been selected to receive the American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA) Distinguished Nursing Home Administrator Award, for his outstanding nursing home work as the administrator of facilities that he has operated and continues to operate. Slatky is an ACHCA Certified Master/Fellow and only six other long term care administrators nationally have achieved this designation. From 2001 to 2009, Slatky was the administrator of the A. Holly Patterson Extended Care Facility and currently oversees the operations of the nursing home as the NuHealth executive vice president of operations.

The Distinguished Nursing Home Administrator Award will be presented to Mr. Slatky at the 2013 ACHCA 47th Annual Convocation and Exposition, being held April 12-16 in Orlando, Florida. In a letter dated February 15, 2013, Roxie Severance, FACHCA, Awards Committee Chair of the ACHCA stated, “On behalf of the American College of Health Care Administrators Board of Directors and the Awards Committee, I am pleased to announce that you have been selected to receive the ACHCA Distinguished Nursing Home Administrator Award for demonstrating extraordinary commitment to the advancement of the professionalism of long term care. Congratulations!”

Gianelli, President/CEO of the NuHealth System, congratulated Mr. Slatky for his recognition by the ACHCA, “We are delighted that you are being honored for your professionalism and commitment to the ACHCA and for your dedication to offering superior resident care in the nursing home environment. It is a well deserved award.”

The distinguished Nursing Home Administrator award is a national award whose purpose is to recognize a Fellow of American College of Health Care Administrators who has demonstrated the highest professional standards as an administrator in Long Term Care.  The Awards Committee of ACHCA sifts through nominations from across the country in search of the award winner who has demonstrated professionalism and accomplishments within that profession.  According to Anthony Restaino, administrator of the A. Holly Patterson Extended Care Facility, “Larry Slatky’s unselfishness, caring and compassion have made a direct impact on the lives of the tens of thousands of patients/residents that he has served for over 40 years.  His dedication and work ethic speak for themselves through his success at many levels of healthcare, with unprecedented accomplishments in healthcare.”

Mr. Slatky was initially retained by the Nassau Health Care Corporation (NHCC) in 2001 to provide administrative consultation to the vice-president of long term care operations. In 2003, he was named senior vice president for the NHCC where he organized the day-to-day operations for A. Holly Patterson Extended Care Facility, the nursing home that is part of the NHCC Health System. He maintained compliant NYSDOH and Joint Commission surveys improved operational efficiencies creating a management run facility and created structure of commitment and quality to assure quality of life and care for the resident population, families and staff of A. Holly Patterson. In 2009, he became executive vice president of operations for the NuHealth System, parent company of the Nassau University Medical Center, the A. Holly Patterson Extended Care Facility and several outpatient centers.

“I am truly honored to have been selected to receive the prestigious ACHCA Distinguished Nursing Home Administrator Award. This award is a testament to the organization’s focus of promoting excellence among long term administrators and I look forward to continuing my work with the ACHCA team on state and national levels,” said Slatky.
