Based on the core values and criteria of the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program, 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 organizational performance and healthcare outcomes.
“This year’s Silver award recipients are positioned well to accomplish even better outcomes as they progress in their quality journey,” said Alana Wolfe, Chair of the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Board of Overseers. “I commend Good Samaritan Society on this outstanding achievement.”
As a 2018 recipient of the Silver award, Good Samaritan Society – Beatrice can now advance in further developing comprehensive approaches that meet the criteria required for the Gold – Excellence in Quality Award.
