ROCKVILLE, Md. –Hebrew Home of Greater Washington has received a 2022 Silver Achievement in Quality Award from the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living.

The award recognizes the second of three distinctions possible through the national quality program, which recognizes providers that demonstrate quality outcomes for staff associates, residents and individuals with disabilities being served in long-term and post-acute settings.

CESLC’s long-term nursing care center, The Hebrew Home of Greater Washington, was one of only three nursing centers in Maryland to receive the distinction and just one of 46 recipients of the silver award across the nation. Each recipient is reviewed and judged against a set of nationally recognized standards for achieving excellence.

“The award acknowledges our associates’ continued commitment to deliver the highest quality care to those we serve every day,” says CESLC Vice President of Operations Brenda L. Rice. “We are very proud of the outcomes achieved as we provide care and meaningful life experiences to older adults, always with a focus on dignity and compassion.”

The award will be presented during AHCA/NCAL’s 73rd Convention & Expo in Nashville in October.

The American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living represent more than 14,000 nonprofit and proprietary skilled nursing centers, assisted living communities, sub-acute centers, and homes for individuals with intellectual and development disabilities.

Founded in 1910, CELSC is a nonprofit organization serving more than 1,100 older adults daily in multiple residences situated on a 38-acre campus in Rockville, Maryland. Services include post-acute and long-term skilled nursing care, assisted living, memory care, geriatric medical care, independent senior living residences and temporary shelter and advocacy for victims of elder abuse at the ElderSAFE™ Center.
