The award is one of three distinct awards possible through the National Quality Award Program, presented by the American Health Care Association (AHCA) and the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL). The competitive award program highlights select centers across the nation that serve as models of excellence in providing high-quality long term and post-acute care.

Brandon Oaks is one of only six facilities in the Commonwealth of Virginia to receive the Silver level award, and the only Assisted Living facility. Brandon Oaks Executive Director, Joe Hoff, states, “We are proud of our staff and leadership at Brandon Oaks Assisted Living for constantly delivering superior resident centered care with an attention to detail”. Hoff also notes, “This achievement mirrors our values across all service lines at Brandon Oaks”.

As a recipient of the Silver Achievement in Quality Award, Brandon Oaks Assisted Living has demonstrated systematic advancements in quality, plans for continual improvement, and sustainable organizational goals. “Brandon Oaks is honored to have received the Bronze, and now the Silver Award from AHCA/NCAL,” states Susan O’Malley, RN, Administrator of Brandon Oaks Assisted Living. O’Malley adds, “There is a tremendous sense of pride and accomplishment in continuous improvement and progress that is sustained”. Now that Brandon Oaks Assisted Living has received both the Bronze Commitment to Quality Award and Silver Achievement in Quality Awards from AHCA/NCAL, they may move forward in developing approaches and achieve performance levels that meet the criteria for the Gold Excellence in Quality Award, the highest award available.

“By successfully applying the rigorous standards of this program, Brandon Oaks Assisted Living has achieved a significant milestone on its quality journey,” said Christine Boldt, Chair of the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Board of Overseers.

All levels of the National Quality Awards will be presented during the AHCA/NCAL 66th Annual Convention and Exposition, October 4-7, 2015, in San Antonio, Texas.
