East Meadow, NY…Larry Slatky, CNHA, FACHCA, NuHealth’s executive vice president of operations has been appointed to serve on the board of directors of the Epilepsy Foundation of Long Island. Mr. Slatky was recently awarded the Epilepsy Foundation’s 2010 Corporate Leadership Award.

The Epilepsy Foundation of Long Island was founded in 1953 by a small group of parents who were determined to see their children lead productive and satisfying lives. Although the foundation has always served people with epilepsy, as it expanded, it began providing services to people with other developmental disabilities as well. All of the foundation's programs are designed to help people reach their full potential and enhance their sense of self-esteem.

In 2003, he was named senior vice president for the NHCC where he organized the day-to-day operation 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.
