AHCA Bronze Award for Quality Chosen for Four Avamere Communities
Four communities from the Avamere Family of Companies applied for the 2018 American Health Care Association and National Center For Assisted Living Quality Awards. The AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program provides a pathway for providers of long-term and post-acute care services to journey towards performance excellence. The program is based on the core values and criteria of the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program. Member centers may apply for three progressive levels of awards: Bronze—Commitment to Quality, Silver—Achievement in Quality, or Gold—Excellence in Quality. Each level has its own distinct rigors and requirements for quality and performance excellence. Applications are judged by trained examiners who provide feedback on opportunities for improvement to support continuous learning.
The award ceremony took place in October at the annual AHCA convention in San Diego. Maggie Hilty from Avamere Rehabilitation of King City and Nathan Nielsen from Laurelhurst Village accepted the awards. You can see the full list of recipients on the AHCA website.
