The AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program provides a pathway for providers of long term and post-acute care services to journey towards performance excellence. The program is based on the core values and criteria of the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program.
Applications are judged by trained Examiners who provide feedback on opportunities for improvement to support continuous learning.
