Wynfield Park Receives National Award

Good afternoon! Wynfield Park Health & Rehabilitation has been recognized as a 2023 recipient of the Bronze – Commitment to Quality Award by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) for its commitment to improving the lives of
residents through quality care. The distinction is the first of three progressive award levels through the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program. The program honors providers across the nation that have demonstrated their commitment to improving quality of care for our nation’s elders and individuals with disabilities.

The AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program is a rigorous three-level process that is reviewed and
evaluated by trained experts against a set of nationally recognized standards for organizational
excellence. The standards of the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program help organizations achieve
superior performance over time to improve quality of life and care of long term care residents and
Providers begin the quality improvement process at the Bronze level, where they develop an organizational profile with essential performance elements such as vision, mission statement, understanding of key customers, and key strengths and challenges. Bronze applicants must also demonstrate their ability to implement a sustainable performance improvement system. Trained examiners review each application to determine if a center has met the demands of the criteria. As
a recipient of the Bronze – Commitment to Quality award, Wynfield Park Health & Rehabilitation may now move forward to the Silver – Achievement in Quality award criteria.
“Earning this award is a milestone to be proud of,” said Cathy Bergland, AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Board Chair. “It’s at this point that providers see what is possible by committing to the process of improvement. Congratulations to Wynfield Park for this achievement. I encourage you to
continue your quality improvement journey.”

Wynfield Park Health & Rehabilitation has been caring for the Dougherty county community for nearly three decades. Also named a Gold Seal Quality Center by The Joint Commission, Wynfield Park is known for providing a high standard of care and customer service.

I am attaching additional details about the award. Please let me know if you need more information. We appreciate your help in sharing this wonderful news with the community.
