ACHCA honors Baker with leadership award

WASHINGTON, DC – The American College of Health Care Administrators has honored Donald C. Baker, administrator of the Ballou Home for the Aged in Woonsocket, with the 2018 Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award. The award was celebrated during a luncheon at ACHCA’s 52nd annual Convocation and Exposition in Orlando, Fla., last month.

Fewer than 11 percent of facilities nationwide qualify. This year, 1,717 facilities met the selection criteria, and 351 administrators in 45 states were awarded the facility leadership award nationally. Eligibility for this award is based on three years of skilled nursing facility survey data, including the health, fire safety, and complaint surveys, as well as top quartile performance on designated quality measures.

The Ballou Home for the Aged is a 43 bed not-for-profit skilled nursing facility located at 60 Mendon Road.
