The Indiana Health Care Association/Indiana Center for Assisted Living (IHCA/INCAL) is pleased to congratulate 17 member communities across the state for being recognized with the 2022 2022 Silver and Bronze – Achievement in Quality award by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) for their commitment to improving the lives of residents through quality care.
The Bronze award is the first and the Silver award is the second of three distinctions possible through the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program, which recognizes providers across the nation that have demonstrated high-quality outcomes for staff and residents in long term and post-acute care. Each application is reviewed and judged against a set of nationally recognized standards for achieving excellence.
The quality of care in Indiana’s nursing facilities and other long-term care facilities continues to outpace the national average as well, according to the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid (CMS). CMS issues a Five-Star Quality Measure Ratings Standard, and Indiana providers consistently rank above the national average.

“Achieving a Silver award level while also heroically protecting and caring for residents during a pandemic is remarkable,” said IHCA/INCAL President Paul Peaper. Our state is home to incredible nursing centers and assisted living communities that embrace continuous quality improvement. We are so proud of our member providers for demonstrating performance excellence during an extremely challenging year. This year, we have more Bronze recipients than the year before and because of the dedication and commitment of our long-term care professionals, our sector will continue to grow stronger. This is a well-deserved recognition for our members and I applaud their efforts for taking important steps towards sustainable quality improvement and for this outstanding achievement.”
AHCA/NCAL will officially present the National Quality Awards during AHCA/NCAL’s 73rd Convention & Expo in Nashville, Tennessee, on October 9-12, 2022.
