Pamela Tallman, Administrator of La Porte City Nursing and Rehabilitation Center was selected to receive the American College of Health Care Administrators’ Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award in early April.

Tallman was one of 234 healthcare administrators throughout the country to receive the award. She was selected as a top leader based on the performance of the facility she leads. Eligibility for this award is based on three years of skilled nursing facility (SNF) survey data, including the Health, Fire (Life Safety), and Complaint Surveys, as well as top quartile performance on designated Quality Measures. The criteria also included an 80% or greater facility occupancy and a three year avoidance of a Special Focus Facility status. This prestigious award is made possible with the support of eHealth Data Solutions.

“It was a pleasant surprise to learn that we were eligible for this award,” Tallman said.

“It’s with a lot of dedication and great team work that La Porte City Nursing and Rehab has achieved excellent standards of care.”

La Porte City Nursing and Rehab is owned and operated by Care Initiatives, Iowa’s largest not-for-profit senior care provider.
