“We are very proud of our skilled nursing facilities that have been recognized for providing exemplary care for their residents,” says John Taylor, CEO of StoneGate. “A heart felt expression of gratitude goes to all of the caregivers in each of the facilities that have been honored to receive the Bronze Award from the American Health Care Association.”

The National Quality Award Program is 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. The Baldrige program helps organizations in different business sectors improve and achieve performance excellence.
The Award Program has three levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Providers begin the quality improvement process at the Bronze level, where they develop an organizational profile with essential performance elements such as vision, mission statement, and key strengths and challenges. Bronze applicants must also demonstrate their ability to implement a performance improvement system. Trained Examiners review each Bronze application to determine if the center has met the demands of the criteria. As a recipient of the Bronze - Commitment to Quality Award, StoneGate may now move forward in developing approaches and achieving performance levels that meet the Silver - Achievement in Quality Award criteria.
“I commend StoneGate Senior Living for embarking on the journey to quality improvement,” says the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Board of Overseers Chair Alana Wolfe. “I encourage StoneGate Senior Living to continue to build on the strong foundation it has created.”
The awards will be presented during AHCA/NCAL’s 68th Annual Convention and Exposition in Las Vegas, Nevada, October 15-18, 2017.
