Lakewood Nursing and Rehabilitation Center has been recognized as a 2012 recipient of the Bronze – Commitment to Quality award for its dedication to improving quality care. The award is one of three distinctions possible through the National Quality Award program, presented by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL). The program honors facilities across the nation that have demonstrated their commitment to the quality improvement journey.
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.
The awards are sponsored by AHCA/NCAL Associate Business Member My InnerView, a Web-based applied research and quality-management company that supports leaders across the entire assisted living, senior housing and skilled nursing profession with tools to measure, benchmark and improve performance. The award was presented to Lakewood Nursing and Rehabilitation Center during AHCA/NCAL’s 63 Annual Convention and Exposition on Oct. 10, 2012 in Tampa, Fla.
