Homestead Rehabilitation Center has been recognized as a 2017 “Silver Achievement in Quality Award” recipient by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL). The award is the second of three distinctions possible through the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program, which was established in 1996 and spotlights providers across the nation that have demonstrated their commitment to improving quality of care for residents and patients in long term and post-acute care centers and communities.
“Homestead is one of four skilled nursing facilities in Nebraska to achieve this prestigious recognition,” said Administrator Matt Romshek. “This honor demonstrates the dedication and commitment to high quality resident care which our team strives for every day. I am very proud of our team for setting the bar so high. I feel it is worth repeating that the application process as well as the quality improvements a facility must achieve, in order to receive this award are strenuous. This award is granted from a national organization, not the city of Lincoln, Lancaster County, or even the State of Nebraska. We look forward to the journey for the Gold Award.”
Based on the core values and criteria of the “Baldrige Performance Excellence Program,” which is also the foundation of the metric-based “AHCA/NCAL Quality Initiative,” AHCA/NCAL’s National Quality Award Program challenges member providers to achieve performance excellence through three progressive levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. At the Silver level, members develop and demonstrate effective approaches that help improve performance and health care outcomes. As a recipient of this year’s Silver award, Homestead Rehabilitation Center can now advance in developing approaches that meet the criteria required for the “Gold Excellence in Quality Award.”
