Ten Alabama nursing homes to receive national award in recognition

MONTGOMERY, AL - Ten members of the Alabama Nursing Home Association (ANHA) have been recognized as 2010 recipients of the Bronze Commitment to Quality National Quality Award presented by the American Health Care Association (AHCA).  This prestigious award is given to facilities that demonstrate excellence and commitment to quality.

Alabama's Bronze Commitment to Quality National Quality Award recipients are:

  • Brookshire Healthcare, Huntsville
  • Canterbury Health Facility, Phenix City
  • Citronelle Convalescent & Rehab Center, Citronelle
  • Cottage of the Shoals Care & Rehab Center, Tuscumbia
  • Eight Mile Nursing & Rehab Center, Eight Mile
  • Golden LivingCenter Montgomery, Montgomery
  • Golden LivingCenter Trussville, Trussville
  • Marshall Manor Nursing Home, Guntersville
  • River City Care & Rehab Center, Decatur
  • Specialty Healthcare & Rehab Center of Mobile, Mobile

"This award demonstrates the facility's intention to begin a rigorous quality improvement program that will directly benefit nursing home residents," ANHA Executive Director Louis E. Cottrell, Jr. said.  "We congratulate each of these facilities on receiving this award and for exemplifying the high quality of care that Alabama nursing homes provide."

Recipients of the Bronze award have a clear vision and mission for their facility and acknowledge key challenges that are embodied in the organizational profile.  The facility must also see the relationship between their organization's characteristics, key challenges, and performance measurements, and the ability to achieve performance improvement.  The Bronze award recognizes providers that have developed a foundation to begin a journey of continuous quality improvement, and they have taken the first step in corresponding with any public measures of performance. 

The ten Alabama nursing homes are part of only 456 facilities nationally that will be presented the award at the AHCA 61st Annual Convention and Exposition in October in Long Beach, CA. Each facility may now apply for the Silver Achievement in Quality National Quality Award.

"The commitment to quality designated by this award is a key first step to developing systematic, sustainable, person-centered care and services," said Bruce Yarwood, President and CEO of AHCA/NCAL. "We congratulate these Alabama facilities on this achievement."

Since 1996, AHCA has used the concepts of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award as the basis for its National Quality Award program for the long-term care profession. At the Bronze level, applications are reviewed by examiners who have received special training to qualify as judges for the award program
