Forty-seven assisted living communities have earned the 2018 Silver – Achievement in Quality Award from the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living, AHCA/NCAL announced Thursday.
One hundred nineteen skilled nursing facilities earned the Silver Award this year, AHCA/NCAL said. Altogether, winning communities and facilities come from 36 states.
AHCA/NCAL has posted the names of the winners on its website.
The Silver Award is the second of three distinctions possible through the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program, which recognizes providers that have demonstrated their commitment to improving quality of care in assisted living and long-term and post-acute care. The awards program is based on the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program.
Bronze-level winners previously were announced, and Gold-level winners will be announced later this summer. Recipient organizations will be honored during AHCA/NCAL’s 69th Annual Convention and Exposition Oct. 7 to 10 in San Diego.
