Clarksville Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center receives American Health Care Association Bronze Award

Clarksville Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is proud to announce, we have received a nationally recognized Bronze Award through the American Health Care Association.

A total of 45 Iowa long-term care facilities were recognized with the 2019 Bronze – Commitment to Quality Award, which encompassed 590 long-term and post-acute care providers in 48 states.

The AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program honors long-term and post-acute care providers that have demonstrated their commitment to improving the quality of care for seniors and individuals with disabilities. This national awards program has three levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Providers begin the quality improvement process at the Bronze level, where they assess their organization’s mission, vision and key factors that lead to success. They also develop an organizational profile and must demonstrate their ability to implement a performance improvement system.

Trained examiners review each application to determine if the center has met the demands of the criteria. Bronze recipients may move forward in developing approaches and achieving performance levels that meet the criteria required for the AHCA/NCAL Silver – Achievement in Quality Award.

The awards program is based on the core values and criteria of the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program, which also serves as the foundation for the metric-based AHCA/NCAL Quality Initiative. The Baldrige framework helps organizations among different business sectors improve organizational effectiveness and achieve strategy-driven performance.

A special thank you to all the Staff and Board of Directors for the quality of care and support you provide.
