June, 2020 -Washington, DC – ACHCA… Wall, NJ – The team at Sunnyside Manor in Wall, NJ ( has met the criteria for the 2020 ACHCA (American College of Health Care Administrators) Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award.

MaryEllen Keane, Administrator of Sunnyside Manor in Wall, NJ, noted that this is the sixth year that she and the team were honored with the Eli Pick Facility Award. Based on the premise that facility excellence is a reflection of leadership excellence, she was recognized as the administrator of record who provided that leadership throughout the award year.

“I am so proud that our team was honored again this year. Sunnyside Manor is about family values. These values begin with our staff and extend to our residents and their families on a daily basis” Ms. Keane said. “This leadership award validates that the Sunnyside team provides the highest quality health care services, and equally important, the caring, compassion and high standards of the Keane family.”

This annual award is in memory of Eli Pick who was a consummate member of ACHCA, dedicated to advancing professionalism and leadership in long term care. Eli embodied excellence as an Administrator that cared for his residents, their families, and his community.
