Long-Term Care Professional Achievement Awards


2017 Long-Term Care Professional Achievement Awards

Ohio's long-term care service providers employ over 80,000 professionals who care for more than 90,000 Ohioans. These employees are the backbone of the LTC community, with care and service providers relying on dedicated teamwork and skills to provide quality care and compassion to patients and families. The Association's Professional Achievement Awards are designed to honor those individuals who have excelled in providing outstanding care in a cooperative spirit of teamwork.

Statewide winners will be awarded in each of the following categories if qualifying nominees are submitted. Association members may nominate individuals based on their own knowledge of the candidates and employer-based selection criteria. Nominees must be approved by the appropriate administrative staff member. This year, there will be separate award categories for OHCA/NF, OCAL/AL and OCID/ID-DD members.
