President Of The Village At Marymount Named Recipient Of Smart 50 Award
Jeff Myers, President of The Village at Marymount, has been named as one of Smart Business Magazine’s Smart 50 Award winners. The Smart 50 Awards recognize the top executives of the 50 smartest companies in the region for their ability to effectively build and lead successful organizations.
Under Jeff’s leadership, The Village at Marymount consistently receives superior Centers for Medicare and Medicaid star ratings, is listed in U.S. News and World Report as a Best Nursing Home, is a NorthCoast 99 winner for the past three years, and received the American Health Care Association’s Silver and Bronze Baldrige Quality awards in 2015 and 2014, respectively.
Jeff’s ability to collaborate with key health care providers and empower leadership staff members to do the same has proven essential to the success of innovative programs implemented by The Village at Marymount.
Residents and patients also have had the opportunity to participate in groundbreaking medical pilots of new partnerships forged by Jeff, the Senior Administration Team, and Board of Directors.
For example, Jeff obtained the grant funding for the Music and Memory program, which helps patients with dementia and Alzheimer’s reconnect with their memories through music. While the organization is proud of its accomplishments, Jeff continues to focus on improvements to the care of the residents.
Jeff formally was nominated for the award by Joseph Fornal, Chairman of The Village at Marymount’s Board of Directors. Board members, including Fred Misischia, also contributed to the nomination as did Tony Coury, Director of Operations at The Village at Marymount, and Executive Director Sue Nall.
“Jeff has worked with key leadership staff to achieve clinical and fiscal excellence in every area of the organization in an ever-changing environment,” Mr. Fornal said. “He has guided the team to innovatively address relationships with insurers and hospitals, looking to streamline payments and care to patients by being a part of affiliations such as the Cleveland Clinic’s Connected Care.”
Jeff is a licensed Certified Public Accountant and Nursing Home Administrator. He also is a charter member of the Garfield Heights Kiwanis Club, and he serves as Treasurer of Cleveland’s Catholic Community Connection.
All 50 winners will be honored during a special celebration on June 29 at Executive Caterers at Landerhaven. Three organizations will receive specialty awards for their achievements in three category areas – innovation, impact, and sustainability. Additionally, all guests will be treated to a keynote address on what it takes to lead a successful “smart” company.
