SEMINOLE – Two area Brookdale communities are being recognized for their commitment to improving the lives of residents through quality care.
The recognition comes from the American Healthcare Association and the National Center for Assisted Living. Freedom Square Rehabilitation and Nursing Services and Seminole Pavilion Rehabilitation and Nursing Services were both notified last week that they will receive a 2014 Bronze AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award.
“We’re honored to receive the 2014 Bronze Award,” said Michael Mason, executive director of Freedom Square. “The process created a sense of continuous improvement guiding us to achieve sustainable progress. It uncovered within our associates, residents, and families ideas for innovation, exceptional clinical skills, and an inspirational caring spirit to ensure we provide the best possible care and outcomes.”
Applicants are assessed on the ability to describe links between their mission, key customers, strategic position and to show improvements driven by their performance management system. Centers must receive an award as each level to progress to the next levels of Silver and Gold.
Freedom Square and Seminole Pavilion will be honored as two of the 390 recipients to receive the award during the AHCA/NCAL’s 65th annual convention and exposition in Washington, D.C., in October.
