Mark Mann, executive director

Life Care Centers of America honored Mark Mann, executive director at Life Care Center of Hilo, Hawaii, with one of two President’s Awards for its Mountain States Division on Aug. 27, 2018.


The President’s Award recognizes distinguished service in a long-term health care management role. The Mountain States Division includes 30 skilled nursing and rehab facilities in Colorado, Hawaii, New Mexico and Wyoming.


Mann was praised for his positivity, enthusiasm and creating a culture of caring and community dedication. He serves as a role model and not only establishes best practices at the building but also wants to share them with other Life Care buildings so they can excel too.


During the recent eruption of Mount Kilauea, Mann and his wife took in an associate and her family who were displaced from Leilani Estates. The family stayed with them for a month until they could find a new home.


“Mark has demonstrated professional skill and compassion in dispatching his responsibilities to the associates, residents and families he serves,” said Beecher Hunter, Life Care president. “He has uniquely demonstrated a leadership style for others to emulate. This is a distinguished award to receive because it goes to the heart of our mission.”


Fifteen President’s Awards are presented annually to leaders of overall successful facilities or organizations within Life Care.
