Tom Koch, STINRC,

Receives Manager of the Year Award

from LeadingAge PA



LeadingAge Pa is a trade association representing Pennsylvania not for profit organizations that provide housing, healthcare and community services primarily to the elderly. There are about 350 member organizations with another 200 business members who provide services to the organizations. Every organization is asked to nominate qualified staff for the Distinguished Service Awards.  Hundreds of nominations are received each year and the LeadingAge PA Awards committee goes through each nomination carefully when making their selections. That is why it is such a huge honor for St. Ignatius Nursing & Rehab Center to have a staff member chosen and we are proud to have Tom Koch receive the Manager of the Year Award.

The award was given on June 21 in Hershey Pa during the Leading Age Annual Conference.  Hundreds of LeadingAge PA members were on hand for the Gala celebration and watched as Tom received this Distinguished Service Award.  A video was shown that showcased Tom’s commitment to the nursing & rehab center, detailing his wonderful rapport with his staff and compassion for our Residents. In addition to the special major renovations and daily maintenance and repairs that are all done on a regular basis, Tom and his team host an annual Christmas party providing homemade food and desserts for all staff of the facility.  They are known throughout the building for their kindness with Residents and willingness to help out with everything.  Tom Koch, his wife Diane and son, his Plant Operations team, along with senior management from St. Ignatius Nursing & Rehab Center were all on hand to watch Tom receive the award and be a part of the special celebration. Congratulations, Tom!
