The GHCA is pleased to congratulate Budd Terrace at Wesley Woods, Camellia Health and Rehabilitation and Roberta Health and Rehabilitation. These centers have been recognized with the 2015 Silver – Achievement in Quality Award selected by the American Health Care Association and the National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) for their commitment to improving the lives of their patients and residents through quality care. 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.
This award recognizes a commitment to clinical, performance and clinical excellence and the systematic application of the Baldridge criteria to systems and processes. We applaud these providers for their commitment to quality of care and life for those they serve. Forty-one centers were recognized as Bronze recipients in June, bringing Georgia’s total quality awards to 44. Gold recipients will be announced on August 14th. While we recognize the commitment is to the quality journey—not the destination—we celebrate this significant milestone for these centers.
