SAN JOSE, Calif., March 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Skyline Healthcare Center, a 253 bed skilled nursing facility in San Jose, recently received a prestigious gold designation by the California Nursing Home Quality Care Collaborative Recognition Program.  Health Services Advisory Group, a Medicare Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization that is funded by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is tasked with spearheading the National Nursing Home Quality Care Collaborative in California.  The Collaborative is a five-year project that runs through July 31, 2019 and focuses on supporting the adoption of Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement in skilled nursing facilities through collaborative learning and action networks.  Each participant facility receives a composite score comprised of 13 long-stay quality measures that represent larger systems within the long-term care setting.  Skyline Healthcare Center achieved a composite score which earned the facility a gold designation. “Skyline Healthcare Center is an example of the great things that can be accomplished when skilled nursing facilities commit to clinical and service excellence,” said Christine Zack, Executive Vice President, Chief Strategy Officer, for Mariner Health Central, Inc.  “Recognizing that patients and their families are often introduced to skilled nursing facilities during a particularly stressful chapter in their lives, Mariner Health Central remains committed to providing the necessary support to its client skilled nursing facilities to facilitate the prioritization of quality empathetic care above all else.  While the entire Skyline Healthcare Center team received this designation because they have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to the patient experience, Joseph Colcol, the facility Administrator, is particularly deserving of this recognition.” Mr. Colcol, who has a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, started his career in healthcare as a Mechanical Plant Supervisor for a hospital in the Philippines.  In 1991, he moved to the United States and worked as an Environmental Services Manager for a skilled nursing facility from Monday through Friday, working weekends as a maintenance man at a second facility while also working full time for the United States Postal Service as a Mail Handler.  Mr. Colcol worked all three jobs for almost eight years but always wanted to become a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator. Mr. Colcol stated “I thought that to be a good Administrator, I should pursue nursing and squeeze it in between my hectic work schedule.”  All of Mr. Colcol’s hard work paid off when he graduated in 2001 with honors and passed the LVN board exam.  At that time, he gave up working for the Postal Service and continued working as an Environmental Services Manager in the morning and an LVN at night.  During that time period, he worked as a Charge Nurse, a Treatment Nurse, an MDS Assistant, and finally a Director of Staff Development. Mr. Colcol further noted “I was lucky to have Administrators who asked me to cover for other Departments when they were on vacation and I took advantage of learning what their job entails.”  In 2008, after giving an in-service on Activities of Daily Living in an Administrator and Director of Nurses meeting, Mr. Colcol was asked if he was interested in an open Administrator position in Hayward.  Eventually, Mr. Colcol became the Administrator of Skyline Healthcare Center where he won Administrator of the Year two years in a row and the facility was also given a Presidential Award for immediately helping victims of calamity during the recent hurricane in the Philippines. Today, Mr. Colcol remains committed to his patients, his employees and the long term care industry and affirms that “with all the changes in the healthcare industry, one thing remains constant at Skyline Healthcare Center. . . Quality of Care." About Mariner Health Central, Inc.
