Administrator of the Year 2020
Gold Country Retirement Center – Placerville, CA
As the daughter of a mother who was a registered nurse and a father who was a long-term care administrator, Sandy grew up with examples of what it meant to be a servant leader. Sandy began working with seniors more than 30 years ago, throughout the state of California, with five (5) of those years as Executive Director of Gold Country Retirement and Healthcare Center.
Her leadership at Gold Country has resulted in a positive cash flow and high occupancy levels in four out of five years at her community. She oversees a staff that has consistently rated well on surveys conducted by various state agencies. She finds inspiration from her staff whom she feels works very hard to make their residents’ lives better.
Gold Country is an integral part of the Placerville community in which it is located – you can’t go anywhere around town without meeting someone who has had a family member living or working at Gold Country. Sandy, herself, is a Rotarian and works hard in the Placerville community, staying involved in the local Chamber of Commerce and the Marshall Hospital Foundation.
At the state level, she is very active in LeadingAge California and was named their 2015 Grassroots Advocate awardee.
Sandy is most proud of the fact that RHF /Gold Country Retirement and Healthcare Center is providing a beautiful and contemporary senior housing option that appeals to the middle-income residents in El Dorado County.
RHF is pleased to present Sandy Haskins with the 2020 Executive Director of the Year Award.
