SAK Healthcare is excited to share that Suzanne Koenig, CEO and Founder, was inducted into the International Women’s Insolvency & Restructuring Confederation’s Women of Restructuring Hall of Fame. Ms. Koenig received this prestigious award at IWIRC’s 19th Annual Spring Conference that was held in April 2022 in Washington, D.C.
This year, IWIRC established the “Women of Restructuring Hall of Fame” award in order to recognize deserving women in the restructuring industry that have exceptional accomplishments throughout an entire career. The award may be presented to an attorney, judge, banker, turnaround manager, academic or other restructuring industry professional. Ms. Koenig is the very first inductee into IWIRC’s Hall of Fame.
As a direct owner and operator of senior living facilities, Ms. Koenig offers the practical perspective of the challenges and opportunities confronting long-term care providers in managing the industry’s changing dynamics. She is a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator and a Licensed Social Worker in multiple states and she serves as a Receiver, Patient Care Ombudsman, Chief Restructuring Officer, Consultant, Advisor, Operator and Third-party Manager in healthcare engagements throughout the United States. As owner and operator of SAK Management Services for over 20 years, Ms. Koenig provides a highly specialized combination of skills in the areas of operations improvement, staff development and quality assurance.
IWIRC Chair, Jennifer Kimble, Counsel at Lowenstein Sandler, New York, stated “IWIRC is thrilled to honor Suzy Koenig with the inaugural induction into the IWIRC Hall of Fame . . . Suzy Koenig is not only a legend in the healthcare space, but she is also viewed as a leader and mentor in the restructuring industry. She is incredibly deserving of induction into the IWIRC Hall of Fame.”
Suzy’s nominator highlighted Suzy’s extraordinary commitment to her clients and her unwavering perseverance, determination and support in healthcare facilities, particularly during the pandemic. “Suzy went above and beyond, often risking her own life, for her clients, the residents, the nurses, the staff and the facility.”
