Award
by the American Health Care Association and National Center

Quality Award Program
, which honors long-term and post-acute

“As part of the Sunrise Quality Promise, all of our communities are
dedicated to providing compassionate, high-quality senior care. We also
celebrate those participating in AHCA/NCAL’s National Quality Award
Program – further demonstrating their commitment to quality and being on
a collaborative, continuous improvement journey that involves residents,
families and team members,” said Sue
Coppola
, SVP of Care for Sunrise. “Sunrise is proud to currently
have 142 total Bronze National Quality Award recipients, the most of any
single assisted living provider.”

“These communities have risen to the challenge set forth by the Bronze
level criteria,” said Ed

success takes vision, planning and a commitment to long-term quality
improvement. We applaud these communities for their achievement.”

Implemented by AHCA/NCAL in 1996, the National Quality Award Program is
centered on the core values and criteria of the nationally recognized
Baldrige Performance Excellence Program. The program includes three
progressive levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Trained examiners review
each member application to determine if the center has met the criteria.

All 2016 National Quality Award recipients will be honored during
AHCA/NCAL’s Annual Convention & Exposition, October 16-19, in Nashville,
TN.
