Honoring Those who Honor Others

Every day, care providers go to work with care, compassion and an eye toward quality. AHCA/NCAL proudly recognizes that commitment and all those who serve others in long term care, post-acute care, assisted living and other settings. So it’s only appropriate that each year we take time to honor those who stand out from the rest.

Next week at our annual Convention and Expo, we’ll recognize the nearly 500 recipients of the AHCA/NCAL Quality Awards, and the following individuals who honor others with their time, talents and care:
