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 has three progressive levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Criteria for the awards are based on quality metrics such as readmission rates, hospitalization rates and workforce performance.  

Award recipients were honored during AHCA/NCAL’s 69th Annual Convention and Exposition in San Diego, California on October 7-10, 2018.
