The Association announced the names of the 126 long term and post-acute care organizations that have earned a 2015 Silver - Achievement in Quality Award. The award is one of three distinct awards possible through the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program, which honors select centers across the nation that serve as models of excellence in providing high-quality long term and post-acute care. A full list of the recipients is available on the AHCA/NCAL website

The program has three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. As a recipient of the Silver - Achievement in Quality Award, these centers and their staff have demonstrated systematic advancements in quality, plans for continual improvement, and sustainable organizational goals.
