4 West Virginia Health Care Centers Recognized in 2018 Silver National Quality Awards Program

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The West Virginia Health Care Association (WVHCA) salutes four long-term and post-acute care members that earned the 2018 Silver – Achievement in Quality Award from the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL).

Recognized were:

  • Braxton Health Care Center, Sutton;
  • Bridgeport Health Care Center;
  • Meadow Garden, Rainelle; and
  • Springfield Center, Lindside

Braxton Health Care Center and Bridgeport Health Care Center are members of the AMFM family, a Charleston-based company. Stonerise Healthcare, also based in Charleston, owns Meadow Garden and Springfield.

The award is the second of three distinctions possible through the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program, which spotlights providers across the nation that demonstrated dedication to improving quality of care for residents and patients in long-term and post-acute care.

“Our members are focused on the well-being of their residents, and we are proud the AHCA/NCAL recognizes their commitment,” said Patrick D. Kelly, chief executive officer of WVHCA. “Receiving the Silver Award recognition is a tremendous accomplishment for those who devote their lives to the care of others.”

Based on the core values and criteria of the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program, AHCA/NCAL’s National Quality Award Program challenges member providers 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 organizational performance and health care outcomes. 2018 recipients of the Silver award can now advance in further developing comprehensive strategies that meet the criteria required for the Gold – Excellence in Quality Award.

AHCA/NCAL will present the awards October 7-10 during its 69th Annual Convention and Exposition in San Diego.
