Good afternoon, ProviderNation.
Nearly as cool are the 360 homes that are collecting hardware. They’ve been given AHCA/NCAL’s Bronze medals for “Commitment to Quality” awards.
“These facilities have risen to the challenge set forth by the Bronze level criteria,” says Ed McMahon, Chair of the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Board of Overseers. “Achieving this level of success takes vision, planning, and a commitment to long-term quality improvement.”
The awards program goes back to 1996, but in recent years, long term care advocates have doubled-down on quality. Stay tuned this summer for announcements about the silver and gold medal recipients.
