CareOne at Hamilton Administrator Receives ACHCA Facility Leadership Award

Annual award recognizes outstanding nursing home leadership

HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, N.J., July 5, 2011—CareOne at Hamilton Administrator Rosemarie Valentine, RN, LNHA, has received the American College of Health Care Administrators’ (ACHCA) Facility Leadership Award. This award, given annually, recognizes a nursing home administrator who demonstrates a dedication to the highest health care standards.

Facility Leadership Award winners are chosen based on skilled nursing facility resident data from the MDS, as well as adherence to rigorous patient care and life code standards. The nursing facility must have an average occupancy rate of 90 percent or more.

Valentine has served as the administrator of CareOne at Hamilton since 2008. She previously served as the CEO of Angela Jane Pavilion Acute Rehabilitation Hospital in Philadelphia, Pa., and has held several nursing and administrative positions in New Jersey and Pennsylvania throughout her 37-year career.

“I am very humbled by this acknowledgment and share this award with my distinguished colleagues at CareOne,” Valentine says. “The aesthetics and amenities of CareOne at Hamilton are second to none, but they are just mortar and brick. The real foundations of this outstanding facility are the people engaged in care on an everyday basis. Our standards are high, and our expectations for quality empower our staff to strive to be the best they can be.”
