By: Brooke Criswell

Westlake Care Community has been recognized as a 2016 recipient of the national Bronze Commitment to Quality Award held by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living.

The award is the first of three distinctions possible by the AHCA/NCAL. The program honors providers across the nation that has demonstrated their commitment to improving quality of care for seniors and persons with disabilities.

“It feels good to be recognized for doing all the hard work every does to give the residents quality care,” Pam Rios-Menter, Administrator, said.

The program has three levels: bronze, silver and golf. Providers begin with the quality improvement process at the bronze level, where they develop organizational profile with essential performance elements such as vision and mission statements and assessments of resident’s expectations.

Bronze applicants must demonstrate their ability to implement a performance improvement system. As a recipient, Westlake  Care Community has met the demands of the criteria and can move forward next year and apply for the Silver award.

The awards will be presented during AHCA and NCAL’s 6th annual convention and exposition in Nashville, Tennessee on October 16 through October 19.
