Evergreen Nursing and Rehabilitation Center has earned a 2016 Bronze National Quality Award. It is the first of three levels of recognition offered by the National Quality Award Program, presented by the American Health Care Association and the National Center For Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL). The program praises providers nationwide who have shown that they are committed to improving the quality of their care for seniors and individuals with disabilities.
Josh Mathis, Administrator at Evergreen Nursing and Rehabilitation said that the recognition was an “honor.” He went on to say that “Evergreen is committed to providing high-quality, person-centered care to our residents and their families. Evergreen will never stop improving and extending quality of life one life at a time.”
The award program encourages providers to continuously increase the quality of their service. Bronze is the first of three levels in the program. Providers start the process of quality improvement at the Bronze level by setting goals and evaluating customer’s expectations. The provider must also demonstrate that they can implement a verifiable system of quality improvement for their services. Evergreen Nursing and Rehabilitation can now begin to implement the necessary improvements to reach the Silver National Quality Award.
National Quality Award Board Overseers Chair Christian Boldt complimented Evergreen on the achievement. “This award is the first step in a program that serves as an essential guide to performance excellence. I encourage Evergreen Nursing and Rehabilitation to continue their quality journey.”
The award will be presented during the AHCA/NCAL Annual Convention in October.
