A total of 166 centers were named this year as Silver Quality Award
recipients, including the following Sunrise communities:

“We are so proud of these 34 Sunrise communities not only for their
focused dedication to providing high-quality, individualized care, but
their ongoing commitment to evaluate their outcomes through quality
assurance and performance improvement processes. These communities are
devoted to delivering positive outcomes for our senior population,” said Sue
Coppola, Chief Clinical Officer for Sunrise. “Through our
systematic, evidence-based approach to care and services with a strong
focus on coordination, we continue to strive for excellence in the ways
we help promote the overall health and wellness of our residents.”

The Silver-level award recognizes each community’s continued endeavor to
explore and develop methods that help to improve overall performance and
health care outcomes. In addition to submitting an in-depth
organizational profile, Silver Award recipients must provide a thorough
assessment of their individual approach to quality care and demonstrate
its effective deployment within the community.

A total of 55 Sunrise communities have now earned the Silver Award,
while more than 150 others have received the Bronze – Commitment to
Quality Award over the years, a prerequisite for Silver. Visit
Sunrise’s National
Quality Awards page for a full listing of the company’s recipients.

“I applaud this year’s Silver award recipients on this incredible
achievement in quality,” said Mark Parkinson, president and CEO of
AHCA/NCAL. “It is a privilege to recognize our member centers and
communities that consistently make a positive impact on the lives of the
patients and residents they serve.”

The National Quality Award Program centers on the core values and
criteria of the nationally recognized Baldridge Performance Excellence
Program. The program includes three progressive levels: Bronze, Silver
and Gold. Trained examiners review each member application to determine
if the center has met the criteria. The Silver Award provides a strong
foundation for taking the final step in the National Quality Award
Program, which is Gold – Excellence in Quality.

All 2018 National Quality Award recipients will be honored during
AHCA/NCAL’s Annual Convention and Exposition, October 7-10, 2018, in San
Diego, CA.
