Hughes Health & Rehabilitation has announced that Amy LaCilento, RN, nursing supervisor, has been selected as a recipient of the 2015 Leaders of Tomorrow award from Long-Term Living Magazine.
LaCilento is one of five healthcare professionals from the United States selected by the publication for the award.
According to its editors, Long-Term Living’s 2015 Leaders of Tomorrow “recognizes those who are making an impact on tomorrow’s long-term care policies, quality initiatives and senior care culture—whether it be on a national scale or one care site and colleague at a time.”
LaCilento was recognized for her leadership role in the design and implementation of Hughes’ Heart Health Program, a nationally-acclaimed initiative that seeks to reduce hospital readmissions for patients with congestive heart failure, as well as for her participation in programs that improve employee morale and wellness, and reinforce Hughes Health’s multigenerational community involvement.
“Amy has participated in vital initiatives for both our residents and co-workers at Hughes Health which have built upon Hughes’ nationally-known reputation of quality health care and our connections to the greater West Hartford community,” said Mark Finkelstein, vice president of Hughes Health & Rehabilitation. “Amy’s recognition nationally as a Leader of Tomorrow by Long-Term Living Magazine is a monumental moment in her career, and one that we are thrilled to share with her.”
“I share this award with all my co-workers at Hughes Health because without their efforts our programs would not be as successful as they are,” said LaCilento. “I am tremendously honored for this recognition and thank the Hughes Health team for making it possible.”
LaCilento, a resident of West Hartford, has worked for Hughes for 11 years.
The winners of the Leaders of Tomorrow award were selected by the editors of Long-Tem Living Magazine for “making a difference in their towns and states while serving as exemplar models for others across the country.”
