Esq. Stephen B. Hanse

ACHCA New York Chapter is proud to announce that Mark Olsen has been named the 2018 Administrator of the Year. Mark has worked in nursing home administration since 1988 and has been the administrator of Kingsway Arms Nursing Center since June of 2008. Mark began his career at Franklin County SNF and then Eden Park Health Care group before joining Kingsway Arms Nursing Center in June of 2008. Under his leadership, Kingsway Arms has enjoyed an outstanding survey history with far fewer deficiencies than the statewide average.

Among his other achievements at Kingsway Arms, Mark has reorganized the nursing department structure with increased clinical staffing hours and reduced costs, increased overall facility CMI through better management of clinical resources, and transitioned to an in-house therapy program with better outcomes and Medicare utilization. Throughout all of these projects, Mark’s over-arching goal was efficiency, and more importantly, high quality and resident and employee satisfaction.

Mark has served on various New York State Health Facilities Association (NYSHFA) State level committees and District level capacities including the NYSHFA Board of Directors, President of District 5, and NYSHFA Legislative Committee Chair. In addition, Mark is involved in a professional and volunteer capacity in his community with participation in such varied activities as “NY Connects” Advisory Council, Greene County and Town of Catskill Chamber of Commerce, and Colonie Youth Center basketball coaching.

Please join the Board of the American College of Health Care Administrators New York Chapter as they honor Mark for his achievements at their annual Convention, March 11 – 14, 2018 at the Villa Roma Resort. The award ceremony will take place at the Installation Banquet on Tuesday, March 13, 2018 at 7:00 pm.
