Fifty-five nursing homes from across Texas earned national honors in early June for their commitment to improving the quality of care for seniors and persons with disabilities.
“This is extraordinary. Texas has never had 55 facilities achieve this level of recognition before,” says Kevin Warren, President and CEO of the Texas Health Care Association. “55 Commitment to Quality Awards is proof our efforts to improve nursing home care in Texas are paying off — despite the state’s chronic Medicaid underfunding.”
The American Health Care Association and the National Center for Assisted Living awarded the 2017 Bronze – Commitment to Quality Award to nursing homes who achieved the first of three distinctions possible through the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program.
Central Texas recipients of the 2016 Bronze – Commitment to Quality Award are: Querencia at Barton Creek in Austin, Stonebridge Health Center in Austin, Wesley Woods Health & Rehabilitation in Waco, William R. Courtney Texas State Veterans Home in Temple and Windsor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center of Seguin.
AHCA/NCAL will announce the 2017 Silver Award recipients in the coming months. The awards will be presented in Las Vegas, Nevada, in October.
