Both Longleaf Neuro-Medical Treatment Center in Wilson and O’Berry Neuro-Medical Treatment Center in Goldsboro have been identified as top performers by the American College of Health Care Administrators.
In order to qualify as a top performer the facility must meet the following criteria:
- Three consecutive years of high performance in health, fire safety and complaint surveys
- An 80 percent or higher occupancy rate
- Avoid special focus facility status and
- Perform in the top quartile on specific quality measures.
Rusty Benton, director of Longleaf, and Deborah Exum, director of O’Berry, received the Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award in association with their facilities’ performances. This award is specific to leaders who have consistently demonstrated leadership excellence well beyond the five star rating system associated with long-term care facilities under the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
Congratulations to staff and nursing home administrators at both of these Division of State Operated Healthcare Facilities for their excellence in service, dedication and commitment to quality.
