Louisville Care Center has been one of the leading skilled nursing facilities in the state for many years.
That commitment to excellence paid off this past week when the facility received a major national honor.
The American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) announced July 9 that Louisville Care Center had earned the 2019 Silver Achievement in Quality Award. LCC captured the honor by meeting many requirements of the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program.
LCC Administrator Kari Wockenfuss said she was thrilled with the award. She said it was a positive reflection of the time and effort that staff and community members had devoted to the facility over the past 47 years.
“This is amazing for our staff, our residents and our community of Louisville,” Wockenfuss said. “We have all worked together and the hard work has paid off.”
Louisville Mayor Roger Behrns agreed with Wockenfuss. He said local residents could feel proud about the achievement.
“It’s a prestigious award that very few places receive,” Behrns said. “It’s an impressive accomplishment.”
The Nebraska Health Care Association (NHCA) announced in June that 24 long-term and post-acute care members across Nebraska were recognized with the 2016 Bronze Commitment to Quality Award by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) for their dedication to quality care. AHCA/NCAL’s National Quality Award Program spotlights providers across the country that have demonstrated their commitment to delivering quality care for seniors and people with disabilities.
“We are proud of our members for their dedication to providing quality care for Nebraska’s nursing facilities and assisted living communities,” said Heath Boddy, president and CEO of NHCA. “This award is achieved through hard work and commitment. Our members are incredibly deserving of this recognition.”
