13 National Health Care Associates’ Centers Recognized by American Health Care Association

The American Health Care Association / National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL), (ACHCA) has identified 13 National Health Care Associates’ centers as top performers in their Quality Initiative Recognition Program. Our centers were recognized for their achievements through the Quality Initiative Recognition Program, which honors member centers for their individual work in achieving AHCA/ Quality Initiative goals.

“I am extremely honored to have our centers recognized for this incredible achievement,” said Marvin Ostreicher, president of National Health Care Associates. “We are proud to improve care for our patients and residents. Our commitment to quality will continue.”

“This achievement overall represents not only improvement on a set of quality measures in these centers but also significant improvements in outcomes among the patients they serve, such as fewer hospitalizations, more discharges back to the community and stopping the use of antipsychotics that can be harmful,” added Ostreicher.

The Quality Initiative was launched in 2012 by AHCA/NCAL as a national effort to build upon the existing work of the post-acute care profession. The Initiative aims to further improve quality of care in skilled nursing centers by challenging members with specific, measurable targets in four or more the following areas:

  1. Decrease turnover rates among nursing staff
  2.  Adopt Core-Q customer satisfaction
  3. Reduce the number of unintended health care outcomes
  4. Safely reduce the number of hospital re-admissions within 30 days or achieve and maintain a low rate of 10%
  5. Improve discharge back to the community by 10% or achieve and maintain a high rate of at least 70%
  6. Improve functional outcomes by 10% or maintain an average rate of improvement of 75%
  7. Safely reduce the off-label use of anti-psychotics
  8. Safely reduce hospitalizations among long-stay residents or achieve/maintain a low rate of 10% or less
