Encanto Palms Assisted Living received the 2017 Bronze – Achievement in Quality Award at the annual National Quality Award Ceremony in Las Vegas, NV.
October 30, 2017 – Phoenix, AZ – Encanto Palms Assisted Living, an assisted living community located in Phoenix, AZ, received the 2017 Bronze – Achievement in Quality Award by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL). The ceremony took place at the annual National Quality Award Ceremony in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Implemented by AHCA/NCAL in 1996, the National Quality Award Program was created to recognize long-term care and post-acute providers across the nation that have demonstrated a commitment to providing and improving the quality of care for their residents.
“We congratulate this year’s Bronze award recipients and look forward to offering continued support and guidance on their journey to improve quality care,” said AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Board of Overseers Chair Alana Wolfe. “The dedication and focus on quality that each organization has shown garners recognition. It will serve their patients and residents well.”
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 fundamental performance elements such as vision and mission statements and key strengths and challenges. Bronze applicants must also demonstrate their ability to implement a performance improvement system.
“On behalf of our entire staff, we are honored to receive this prestigious recognition by AHCA/NCAL,” says Encanto Palms administrator Charles Villafranca. “I am humbled by the great men and women who work tirelessly at Encanto Palms. They strive daily to provide our residents a safe, therapeutic and comfortable living environment in which to thrive.”
As a recipient of this year’s Bronze award, Encanto Palms can now advance to meet the criteria required for the Silver – Achievement in Quality Award.
