ST. PETERSBURG, FL – Apollo Health and Rehabilitation Center, part of the Greystone Health Network, has been recognized with the 2015 Commitment to Quality Award – Bronze, presented to only seven percent of Florida’s skilled nursing facilities, by the American Health Care Association and National Center For Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL). The award honors centers across the nation that have demonstrated commitment to quality care for seniors. Bronze status facilities are qualified to pursue silver status.
“Enhancing the lives of our patients and their supporting families is at the core of our values and an integral part of our people-first culture,” said Connie Bessler, CEO of Greystone Healthcare Management. “This award symbolizes the dedication and commitment of our associates.”
Implemented in 1996, the National Quality Award Program requires three levels: bronze, silver, and gold. Bronze applicants demonstrate performance improvement systems and realize their mission and vision. Trained examiners select only the most qualified applicants to receive the bronze distinction.
“Apollo Health and Rehabilitation Center has demonstrated its commitment to providing quality care,” said Christine Boldt, AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Board of Overseers Chair. The awards are sponsored by AHCA/NCAL Associate Business Members, My InnerView, National Research Corporation, and PointRight.
