Head of veterans home earns award
The Minnesota Department of Veteran Affairs is proud to announce that Luke Schryvers, administrator of the Minnesota Veterans Home in Luverne, was awarded the 2020 Eli Pick Facility Leadershp Award.
This award is given by the American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA), and only seven percent of facilities nationwide met the selection criteria for this award.
“We congratulate Luke on this award and are very proud of the work he and his staff continue to do. This is about the team at the Luverne Veterans Home more than anything,” said Deputy Commissioner of Healthcare Douglas Hughes. “This is Luke’s second such award and recognizes his outstanding leadership in caring for our veterans and residents at the home.”
Based on the premise that facility excellence reflects leadership excellence, this award recognizes the administrator who provided outstanding leadership for the full 2019 calendar year.
Eligibility for this award is based on three years of skilled nursing facility survey data, including the Health, Fire Safety, and Complaint surveys, as well as top quartile performance on designated quality measures. The criteria also include at least an 80 percent or greater facility occupancy and a three-year avoidance of a Special Focus Facility status.
