"The Step II Award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the truly gifted team of professionals at each of these five locations," notes Genesis Chief Executive Officer George V. Hager, Jr. "It is a great honor to receive this distinction."
AHCA/NCAL is a trade organization with approximately 11,000 members. AHCA/NCAL used the concepts of the Baldrige National Quality Award to create the 3-step national quality award program for the long term care profession in 1996. In 2009, there were 664 Step I applications, 215 Step II applications, and 19 Step III applications. Applications are reviewed by teams of Master and Senior Examiners who have received special training to qualify as judges for the award program. A nine member Board of Overseers provides oversight of the award program.
The awards are sponsored by AHCA/NCAL Associate Business Member McKesson Medical-Surgical, a leading distributor of medical supplies and equipment to physician practices, surgery centers, hospitals, home care, and extended care facilities, and My InnerView, a Web-based applied research and quality-management company that supports leaders across the entire assisted living, senior housing and skilled nursing profession with tools to measure, benchmark and improve performance.
