Memphis Jewish Home & Rehab has been recognized with a 2017 Bronze Commitment to Quality Award by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL). The award is the first of three distinctions possible through the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program, which honors long term and post-acute care providers that have demonstrated their commitment to improving the quality of care for seniors and people with disabilities.

Implemented in 1996, the National Quality Award Program is centered on the core values and criteria of the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program, which is the foundation of the metric-based AHCA/NCAL Quality Initiative. The program assists providers of long-term care services in achieving performance goals.

Twelve facilities (10 nursing homes and two assisted living facilities) in Tennessee were among the 520 long-term care facilities in 46 states recognized this week. MJHR was Mid-South's only facility to be recognized.
