Living Court Assisted Living has been recognized as a 2011 recipient of the Bronze-Commitment to Quality National Quality Award for its performance in the health care profession.

The award, presented by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living, highlights facilities across the nation that have demonstrated their intention to pursue a rigorous quality improvement system.

Implemented by AHCA/NCAL in 1996, the National Quality Award Program assists providers of long-term and post-acute care services in achieving their goals.

The program has three levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Bronze applicants must demonstrate their ability to implement a performance improvement system. A team of trained Examiners reviews each Bronze application to determine if the facility has met the demands of the criteria. Living Court may now move forward in developing approaches and achieving performance levels that meet the criteria required for the Silver-Achievement in Quality award.

Living Court was one of two Washington facilities to receive the Bronze award.

The award was presented during AHCA/NCAL’s 62nd Annual convention and exposition, which took place Sept. 18-21 in Las Vegas.
