Good Samaritan Society – Davenport has been recognized as a 2020 Bronze – Commitment to Quality Award recipient by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL). The award is one of three distinctions of the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program. This program is a three-step process that encourages excellence through the continuous learning, development and execution of integrated quality systems.
Each progressive program step requires a more detailed and comprehensive demonstration of quality integration and performance. The criteria for each step is based on the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program.
Providers who earn the Bronze–Commitment to Quality Award can sufficiently describe their mission, characteristics and key challenges. They recognize the relationship of these factors to their ability to improve their performance. The award recognizes providers for developing a foundation to begin a journey of continuous quality improvements. It does not necessarily correspond to any public measure of performance.
The AHCA/NCAL represents more than 14,000 nonprofit and proprietary skilled nursing centers, assisted living communities, sub-acute centers and homes for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. By delivering solutions for quality care, AHCA/NCAL aims to improve the lives of the nearly five million seniors and individuals with disabilities who receive long-term or post-acute care in facilities each year.
