Grace Facilities Honored with 2015 Silver Awards

Award IconTwo Grace Healthcare facilities have been recognized as recipients of the Silver – Achievement in Quality award for their outstanding performance in the health care profession. The award is the second of three distinctions possible through the National Quality Award Program, presented by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL). The competitive award program highlights select centers across the nation that serve as models of excellence in providing high-quality long-term and post-acute care.

The two facilities that were honored are:

Beverly Park Place Health and Rehab

Grace Healthcare of Whites Creek

Implemented by AHCA/NCAL in 1996, the National Quality Award Program is centered on the core values and criteria of the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program. The program assists providers of long-term and post-acute care services in achieving their performance excellence goals.

The program has three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Centers begin the quality improvement process at the Bronze level, and must receive an award at each level before proceeding to the next. As recipients of the Silver – Achievement in Quality Award, Beverly Park Place Health and Rehab and Grace Healthcare of Whites Creek have demonstrated systematic advancements in quality, plans for continual improvement, and sustainable organizational goals. These two facilities may now move forward in developing approaches and achieving performance levels that meet the criteria required for the Gold – Excellence in Quality Award, which requires them to address the Baldridge Health Care Criteria for Performance Excellence in its entirety.

Six Grace Healthcare facilities previously received the Bronze – Commitment to Quality Award.

“We are all so proud of this recognition” said Michael Roberts, president of Grace Healthcare, LLC. “The key to our success is our committed team. Their hard work and dedication to improving the lives of the residents we care for every day is why we are in this position. We’ve dedicated ourselves to this quality journey and are looking ahead to the next level.”

Congratulations to all of the winners and thank you to all of the members of the Grace Healthcare team for the outstanding work that you do every day.
