Please join me in congratulating the thirty-one 2011 Silver Quality Award recipients and thank them for going the extra mile and doing the right things for the right reasons! Promoting the long-term care industry at a community level is always challenging and in addition to recognizing the efforts of long-term care providers, the Quality Awards are also a positive community relations opportunity. Is it time for your facility to consider taking on the Quality Award Challenge? Please refer to www.AHCA.org for more information and remember, the HealthCap Risk Management consultants are available to assist you as you begin your journey!
