BERLIN — Jeffrey Lacroix, administrator of St. Vincent de Paul Rehabilitation & Nursing Center in Berlin, was named a recipient of the Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award, one of the highest honors bestowed to skilled nursing leaders on a national level.

Presented by the American College of Health Care Administrators, the Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award honors administrators who demonstrate leadership excellence and superior facility performance related to various health, safety and quality measures. Only 286 administrators across 35 states received the award.

“Jeff is passionate, driven and unwavering in his commitment to ensuring residents and families across the North Country receive the highest level of skilled nursing care,” said Alain Bernard, assistant vice president of health-care services for Catholic Charities New Hampshire. “St. Vincent would not be a nationally recognized facility without his leadership. We congratulate him on this well-deserved honor.”

Lacroix was honored at ACHCA’s annual Convocation and Exposition in Louisville, Ky., on Monday, March 18.

St. Vincent de Paul Rehabilitation & Nursing Center, which is owned and operated by Catholic Charities New Hampshire, provides person-centered care designed to meet the unique needs of all individuals through short-term skilled nursing rehab, long-term care, memory care and independent living.
