Congratulations to Our Leadership Academy Graduates!
Tim Jordison, our executive director, and Stacey Brand, our director of nursing, graduated from the Iowa Health Care Association Leadership academy in October.
The academy is an intensive one-year leadership course for licensed nursing home administrators, assisted living directors, home care agency directors, and directors of nursing who work in long-term care and assisted living communities. Through the academy, professionals build and grow leadership skills to drive quality improvements within their communities. Specific areas of focus include achieving workplace excellence, managing change, assuring quality, improving organizational performance and navigating the post-acute care landscape.
The professionals completed academic surveys, an orientation webinar, in-person meetings, and networking conference calls during the year-long program. They also completed an individualized quality improvement project for their organizations as part of the course. Project topics ranged from reducing staff turnover, improving customer satisfaction, and improving clinical outcomes for the patients they serve.
This is the third group of graduates to complete the academy. The academy is made possible by a sponsorship from Healthcare of Iowa.
Again, congratulations to Tim and Stacey on this outstanding accomplishment!
