SVHRC Recognized for Improving Quality of Long-Term Care

Spring Valley Health and Rehabilitation Center was recognized by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) for its achievements in the quality of care they provide.

Spring Valley Health and Rehabilitation Center accomplished national goals in areas including achievements in reducing hospitalizations and dose reductions for anti-psychotic medications.

“The entire team at Spring Valley Health and Rehabilitation Center is honored to be recognized for this incredible achievement,” said Kevin Larson, Administrator – CEO of Spring Valley Health and Rehabilitation Center. “It clearly demonstrates how we prioritize our efforts to be continuously improving care for our patients and residents. Our commitment to quality is further fueled by this recognition.”

AHCA/NCAL recognized long term care providers for their achievements through its Quality Initiative Recognition Program, which honors facilities for their individual work in achieving AHCA/NCAL Quality Initiative goals.

“This achievement represents progress on important quality measures that will positively impact the lives of residents,” said Dr. David Gifford, Senior Vice President of Quality and Regulatory Affairs and Chief Medical Officer at AHCA/NCAL. “We applaud organizations for their hard work and dedication to this significant quality improvement effort.”

Launched in 2012 by AHCA/NCAL, the Quality Initiative serves as a national e­ffort to build upon the existing work of the long term and post-acute care profession. The Initiative aims to further improve quality of care in skilled nursing centers and assisted living communities by challenging member facilities to meet measurable goals in areas such as hospital re-admissions, off-label use of anti-psychotics, and customer satisfaction.
