Louisiana Nursing Facilities Nationally Recognized for High-Quality Care

Louisiana facilities ranked second in the nation for receiving the most Silver – Achievement in Quality Awards in 2019


Louisiana Nursing Home Association (LNHA) announced that 29 nursing facilities and assisted living facilities earned national quality awards for their commitment to improving the quality of care for seniors and individuals with disabilities. TheAHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program has three consecutive levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold; providers begin the quality improvement process at the Bronze level.

In 2019, Louisiana ranked second in the nation for receiving the most Silver – Achievement in Quality Awards for long-term care quality. Eleven Louisiana nursing facilities and two assisted living facilities in Louisiana earned the 2019 Silver – Achievement in Quality Award. Only one other state outperformed Louisiana in earning the most silver awards in this national awards competition.

Also this year, 16 Louisiana nursing facilities earned the 2019 Bronze – Commitment to Quality Award receiving national honors for their dedication to improving quality care.

“I am proud of the 29 member facilities for their commitment to providing the highest quality care to their residents,” said Mark Berger, executive director of LNHA. “Receiving a bronze or silver award is an incredible recognition of a facility’s unwavering focus on continuous quality improvement which ultimately improves the overall health outcomes of the residents they serve. These member nursing facilities are incredibly deserving of this award and I commend each nursing facility’s staff and leadership for their hard work and dedication.”

Implemented by AHCA/NCAL in 1996, the National Quality Award Program is centered on the core values and criteria of the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program, which is the foundation of the metric-based AHCA/NCAL Quality Initiative. The program assists providers of long term and post-acute care services in achieving their performance excellence goals.
