Posted: Thursday, April 4, 2019 9:38 AM

Albany County Executive Daniel P. McCoy today congratulated Albany County Department of Residential Health Care Facilities Executive Director Larry Slatky for receiving the 2019 Distinguished Service Award from the American College of Health Care Administrators. The award is one of the highest honors that the New York Chapter of the nonprofit offers to leaders in health care.

“With the help of Director Slatky, we have been able to turn around the finances at our County Nursing Home and we are well on our way to transforming the facility into an incredible home for our residents. His passion for helping others is shown by this project and I can’t think of anyone else more deserving of this award,” said County Executive McCoy. “From expanded common areas, to private rooms on the first floor to make them more accessible, by next year, our residents will have the new home they deserve.”

“Our seniors have worked hard, raised families and contributed to our communities, and working with County Executive McCoy to improve their lives has been an incredible honor. To receive this award from such a well-regarded organization is truly humbling and I look forward to seeing this innovative project through that will allow the hundreds of older residents who live in our Nursing Home to do so in comfort and dignity,” said Executive Director Slatky.

The award will officially be presented to Director Slatky at the 23rd Annual ACHCA Reception benefiting the Sister Joan Cassidy and Michael Cuseo Cultural Diversity Endowment Fund on June 13 at Leonard’s Palazzo of Great Neck, New York. This honor builds upon Albany County receiving the 2018 Bronze National Quality Award from the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) in October of last year for its commitment to improving services for seniors and residents with disabilities.
