The Village at Northrise Receives Silver National Quality Award

New Mexico senior community recognized by national program for best practices in quality care

[Las Cruces, NM] – July 15, 2013–The Village at Northrise, a continuing care senior community operated by Genesis HealthCare, today announced that it has been selected as a recipient of the Silver – Achievement in Quality for its outstanding performance in the health care profession. The award is one of three distinct awards possible through the National Quality Award program, presented by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL). The competitive award program highlights select facilities across the nation that serve as models of excellence in providing high-quality long term care.

“To earn an award at this level requires the unwavering commitment of each individual in a facility,” said Mark Parkinson, President and CEO of AHCA/NCAL. “The Village at Northrise deserves the Silver Quality Award for its accomplishments, and I congratulate each and every person that helped in this constant journey of improving quality care.”

Implemented by AHCA/NCAL in 1996, the National Quality Award Program is centered on the criteria of the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program. The program assists providers of long term and post-acute care services in achieving their performance excellence goals.

“At The Village at Northrise, we have an ongoing commitment to quality,” notes Administrator Donald Wilson.  “I am so proud of the hard work and dedication our team here has shown to achieve this distinction and provide quality services and care to our patients and residents every day.”

The program has three levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Facilities begin the quality improvement process at the Bronze level and must receive an award at each level before proceeding to the next. As a recipient of the Silver – Achievement in Quality award, The Village at Northrise has demonstrated systematic advancements in quality, plans for continual improvement, and sustainable organizational goals. The Village at Northrise may now move forward in developing approaches and achieving performance levels that meet the criteria required for the Gold – Excellence in Quality award, which requires them to address the Baldrige Health Care Criteria for Performance Excellence in its entirety.

“I have been to many facilities throughout the years, and I know that it takes a lot of time and energy to apply and adhere to the rigorous standards of this quality award program,” says Ed McMahon, Chair, AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Board of Overseers. “The Village at Northrise should be commended for its performance and dedication to providing high-quality care.”

The awards are sponsored by AHCA/NCAL Associate Business Member My InnerView, by National Research Corporation. My InnerView represents the true voice of nursing home and assisted living residents, families, and employees with the most insightful quality measurement solutions and satisfaction surveys in the healthcare continuum. The award will be presented to The Village at Northrise during AHCA/NCAL’s 64th Annual Convention and Exposition, October 6-9, 2013, in Phoenix, AZ.
