2014 Quality Award Deadlines Quickly Approaching

Each new year is a fresh start to begin a quality journey, and there's no better way to mark success along that path than the American Health Care Association and the National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) National Quality Awards program.  Each year, hundreds of facilities seek to improve their performance by following the Baldrige criteria as set forth in the quality awards program.

Deadlines are quickly approaching!  Be mindful of the following dates:

  • Bronze and Gold Quality Award application deadline: January 30, 2014
  • Silver Quality Award application deadline: February 27, 2014

A Bronze application can be completed in as few as 10 hours, so there’s plenty of time for members to begin the first step in the quality journey. Video guides to complete applications at all levels, supporting documents and sample applications are available on the application resources page of the Quality Award website.

The Quality Award submission portal is open, and applications can be submitted online.  For questions about the program, please contact Quality-Award@ahca.org.
