Avamere at Sandy Receives the National Bronze Quality Award for 2011
Avamere at Sandy is proud to announce that we are the recipient of the 2011 Bronze Quality Award from AHCA/NCAL. We would like to thank the staff for their hard work and commitment that made this award possible.
The AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award has been designed as a progressive three-step process to encourage the continuous learning and development of integrated quality systems to achieve performance excellence. Each progressive step requires a more detailed and comprehensive demonstration of quality integration and performance. The criteria for each step is based on the Baldrige National Quality Award Program’s core values and concepts.
Bronze—Commitment to Quality—Reviewed by independent examiners, applicants who receive the Bronze award are able to describe their mission, characteristics, and key challenges and to recognize the relationship of these factors to their ability to achieve performance improvement. The Bronze award recognizes that the provider has developed a foundation to begin a journey of continuous quality improvement, and does not necessarily correspond to any public measure of performance.
