Logan Acres Senior Community was recognized as a 2017 Silver Achievement in Quality Award recipient by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL). The award is the second of three distinctions possible through the National Quality Award Program established in 1996 and spotlights providers across the nation that demonstrate a strong commitment to improving quality of care for residents and patients in long term post-acute care centers and communities.
“We are excited to receive national recognition for this accomplishment on our journey to improving quality, patient-centered care systems,” said Lorraine Fischio, Administrator of Logan Acres Senior Community. “The process of applying to earn the Silver level award has helped streamline our vision and directed our efforts to create excellence in patient outcomes”.
Based on the core values and criteria of the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program, which is also the foundation of the metric-based AHCA/NCAL Quality Initiative, nursing facilities are challenged to achieve performance excellence through three progressive levels—Bronze, Silver, and Gold. At the Silver level, members develop and demonstrate effective approaches that help improve performance and health care outcomes.
“I am honored to recognize this year’s Silver award recipients for their dedication to delivering quality care,” said Alana Wolfe, Chair of the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Board of Overseers. “I applaud Logan Acres Senior Community’s ability to effectively apply the Baldrige criteria to improve quality performance.”
