Troy Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center Honors Troy Hutchinson During National Long-Term Care Administrator’s Week


For the Miami Valley Today

TROY – Troy Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center, a 155-bed post-acute and skilled nursing facility, is honoring its administrator, Troy Hutchinson, for his healthcare leadership during National Long-Term Care Administrator’s Week, March 14-18, 2022, established by the American College of Health Care Administrators.

This year, Long-Term Care Administrator’s Week continues to have added significance due to the COVID-19 pandemic for these leaders of skilled nursing facilities. The nation’s long-term care leaders, including Hutchinson, have led the way in the battle with the virus, giving their all to assure their facilities are equipped to provide quality care and services to the residents in their care.

Working at a career he loves is what motivates Hutchinson every day. “Professionally, I have worked in post-acute rehabilitation for most of my career,” he said. “My goal is to continue my path as a leader in the healthcare industry.”

Hutchinson has worked in healthcare for 25 years and became a skilled nursing facility administrator in 2000. He has an MBA from Bluffton University, Bachelor of Science from the University of Toledo, and graduated from Covington High School. Hutchinson is married with three children and enjoys watching his children play sports.

Ensuring quality care

Administrators including Hutchinson are key players in a facility’s care team. They touch the lives of residents and families, and, most importantly, ensure that their staff provides the highest level of quality care to a vulnerable population. Every day, he strives to support the mission, vision, and commitment to providing quality of care and innovative services for which Troy Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center is known.

“I am passionate about my job and grateful for the opportunity to give back to this older generation,” said Hutchinson. “I enjoy the daily interaction with our residents. Many of the seniors I work with have lived full and interesting lives. Talking with our residents and learning from their stories and life experiences has enriched my life in many ways.”

To become an administrator takes commitment and dedication. Individuals often undertake a rigorous internship, followed by state and national exams. Upon becoming an administrator, they must continue life-long learning to provide the best care possible. They are masters of multi-tasking – considering every aspect of a person’s life, not just their medical needs – while building a sense of home and community for all facility residents, and a warm feeling of belonging for staff.

“One of the most important aspects of my job is to ensure our residents feel valued, and maintain their highest practicable physical, emotional and social well-being,” said Hutchinson. Among the ways this is achieved at Troy Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center is through its soon-to-be-opened, on-site Hemodialysis Unit serving current patients and residents as well as newly admitted patients who require dialysis. “This is such a great new service as residents and patients can receive their prescribed treatment in the hemodialysis unit without leaving the facility,” he noted. “It is just down the hall!”
