PHOENIX, Aug. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Encanto Palms Assisted Living, an assisted living community located in Phoenix, Arizona, has earned the 2017 Bronze - Achievement in Quality Award by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL).  The program was created to recognize long-term care and post-acute providers across the nation that have demonstrated a commitment to providing and improving the quality of care for their residents.

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 helps improve and achieve performance excellence.

"We congratulate this year's Bronze award recipients and look forward to offering continued support and guidance on their journey to improve quality care," said AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Board of Overseers Chair Alana Wolfe. "The dedication and focus on quality that each organization has shown garners recognition. It will serve their patients and residents well."

The award program has three levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Providers begin the quality improvement process at the Bronze level, where they develop an organizational profile with fundamental performance elements such as vision and mission statements and key strengths and challenges. Bronze applicants must also demonstrate their ability to implement a performance improvement system.

"On behalf of the entire staff, I am honored that Encanto Palms has been recognized by AHCA/NCAL," says administrator Charles Villafranca. "We strive daily to fulfill our mission of providing a safe, therapeutic and comfortable living environment in which our residents can thrive."

As a recipient of this year's Bronze award, Encanto Palms can now advance in developing approaches that meet the criteria required for the Silver - Achievement in Quality Award.

The awards will be presented during AHCA/NCAL's 68th Annual Convention and Exposition in Las Vegas, Nevada, October 15-18, 2017.
