Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) September 22, 2014

During the annual Oregon Health Care Association (OHCA) Annual Convention, key leaders from the Oregon long-term care and senior housing industry are recognized for their efforts to go the extra mile for the well-being of others.

This year, Nicolette Merino, Regional Director of Operations for Avamere Health Services, will be awarded the OHCA Special Service Award. This award is given each year by OHCA staff to members who assist OHCA in reaching strategic objectives or help achieve the organization’s mission to “promote high quality care and services through professional development and effective advocacy in the shaping of public and private policy.”

“We are certainly proud of Nicolette’s latest achievement,” says Matthew Hilty, Vice President of Avamere Living. “She is dedicated to improving the experience of older adults throughout Oregon with finding the right post-retirement community and comprehensive care to live a fulfilling life.

Nicolette has served as a Regional Director of Operations for Avamere Health Services since 2008. In this role she oversees operations for nine assisted living campuses that include services such as memory care and independent living. Her work to improve the lives of seniors goes well beyond her work with Avamere. Nicolette is the current chair of the OHCA Assisted Living Board, member of the American Health Care Association (AHCA) Board of Overseers for Quality Awards, Senior Examiner for AHCA Quality Awards, and past chair of the National Center for Assisted Living.
