Meadow View announced today that it is a proud recipient of the American Health Care Association and the National Center for Assisted Living’s (AHCA/NCAL) Bronze – Commitment to Quality, National Quality Award in recognition of the facility’s strong commitment to continuous quality improvement.
“The AHCA/NCAL Quality Awards – comprised of three levels, Bronze – Commitment to Quality award; a more rigorous Silver – Achievement in Quality award; and a comprehensive Gold – Excellence in Quality award – are the most prestigious recognition of quality within the long term care profession,” stated Governor Mark Parkinson, President and CEO of AHCA/NCAL. “Each one of the award recipients has proven its dedication to improving lives through quality care, and it is a privilege to honor them with this year’s award. We congratulate Meadow View on this achievement.”
As a Bronze award recipient, Meadow View demonstrated its organization-wide commitment to a customer-focused facility mission, defined its principal customers and their expectations, and indicated ways that it is striving to meet their needs.
“The Quality Award program is an independently judged, criteria-based, award program, and this year, our facility is one of only 357 long term care centers nationwide to receive this noteworthy award in 2013. We are proud of this accomplishment and thank our staff for their strong commitment to excellence,” said Joe Cox, Administrator of Meadow View.
AHCA/NCAL’s Quality Award is modeled after the criteria of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the nation’s premier award recognizing distinguished achievements. AHCA/NCAL’s award is designed to support both continuous quality improvement efforts in long term care by promoting quality awareness and education and to recognize quality achievements.
