(Maitland, FL) – Consulate Health Care has been recognized as a 2019 recipient of the Silver – Commitment to Quality Awards for its dedication to improving the lives of residents through quality care. This distinction is one of three progressive award levels through the National Quality Award Program, presented by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL), the leading association for long-term and post-acute care. This program honors association members across the nation that have demonstrated their commitment to improving quality of care for seniors and persons with disabilities.

Consulate Health Care is a leading national provider of senior healthcare services, specializing in post-acute care. As a leader in short-term rehabilitative programs and transitional care, Consulate is honored to add another 4 care centers to their previous list of AHCA Silver Award Recipients.

2019 Silver National Quality Awards

The Parks Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center in Orlando, FL

Emerald Ridge Rehabilitation and Care Center in Asheville, NC

Consulate’s employees strive every day to make a positive difference in the lives of those entrusted to their care. This national recognition is a testament to their dedication not only to caring for patients and residents like family, but to the overall quality of their healthcare journey.

The award program has three levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Providers begin the quality improvement process at the Bronze level, where they develop an organizational profile with essential performance elements such as vision, mission statement, key strengths, and challenges. Bronze applicants must also demonstrate their ability to implement a performance improvement system. Trained Examiners review each Bronze application to determine if the center has met the demands of the criteria. At the Silver level, members develop and demonstrate effective approaches that help improve performance and health care outcomes. As a recipient of the Silver Award – Commitment to Quality Awards, Consulate Health Care may now move forward in developing approaches and achieving performance levels that meet the Gold – Achievement in Quality Award criteria.

The awards will be presented during AHCA/NCAL’s Annual Convention and Exposition in Orlando, Florida, October 13-16, 2019.
