The Health Facilities Association of Maryland (HFAM), in conjunction with the American Health Care Association (AHCA) and the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL), announced that nine skilled nursing care centers and assisted living communities in Maryland have earned top recognition for quality care. The awards honor providers across the nation for demonstrating strong commitment to improving quality of care for residents and patients in need of long-term and post-acute care.

The associations’ Quality Award program challenges member providers to achieve performance excellence through three progressive levels – Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Five providers in Maryland earned Silver distinction, while four providers earned Bronze. In total, Maryland now has 11 Silver and 52 Bronze award winners. Members at both levels have developed and demonstrated effective approaches that improve performance and quality outcomes for patients in their facilities.

“Maryland is always on the cutting edge of healthcare and our state’s skilled nursing and post-acute providers are no exception,” said Joe DeMattos, president and CEO of HFAM. “Studies show that patients who receive treatment in a skilled nursing facility after a hospital stay are more prepared to transition back to their regular daily activities and are less likely to be readmitted to the hospital. HFAM is committed to being part of the solution by continuing our work with the top 150 skilled nursing centers in the state to provide the best possible care for Marylanders in need and their families.”
