American Senior Communities is proud to announce that two of their communities have received the 2022 Silver- Achievement in Quality Award bestowed by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL).

This award is part of the AHCA/NCAL’s National Quality Award Program, which recognizes long-term and post-acute communities nationwide for demonstrating dedication to improving the lives of their residents through consistent, quality care.
Applicants for the Silver Award status must have already attained the Bronze – Commitment to Quality Award, which focuses on a community’s ability to implement a performance improvement system. At the Silver level, applicants continue to learn and develop effective approaches that improve performance and healthcare outcomes. Communities are assessed on their systems of organization, their effectiveness and their tools for improvement in their approaches. This award lays the foundation for the program’s next designation, which is the Gold- Excellence in Quality Award.
“We are so proud of and grateful to these two teams for living out our core values of Compassion, Accountability, Relationships and Excellence in an exceptional way. These values not only form the acronym CARE but also serve as our guiding principles as we serve our residents and their families with quality care and compassion. Without these teams’ high level of dedication and commitment, earning this distinction would not be possible,” ASC’s CEO, Donna Kelsey said.
All 2022 honorees are recognized at AHCA/NCAL’s Annual Convention & Expo. For more information about American Senior Communities, please visit ASCCare.com.
