AHCA/NCAL Announces 2013 Bronze & Silver National Quality Award Recipients

The AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program honors skilled nursing and post-acute care facilities across the nation that have demonstrated their commitment to improving quality care for seniors and individuals with disabilities. The program has three distinctions that build on each other—Gold, Silver, and Bronze. In order to become eligible to apply for a Silver award, a facility is required to have already received a Bronze award; likewise, facilities must have attained both Bronze and Silver awards in order to qualify for a Gold award

AHCA/NCAL recently announced its 2013 Bronze and Silver National Quality Award Program recipients. The 2013 Gold recipients will be announced in the coming months.

This year, 360 facilities earned a 2013 Bronze- Commitment to Quality National Quality Award, while 59 facilities earned a Silver- Achievement Quality National Quality Award

“Though this achievement these award recipients have demonstrated to their residents, their communities, and the long term and post-acute care profession at-large that they are not only committed to quality, but they are exceling in that commitment,” said Ed McMahon, Chair of the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Board of Overseers.

Bronze Award recipients have developed an organizational profile including vision and mission statements, demonstrated an awareness of their environment and customers’ expectations, and improved a process within their facility.
