NORWAY, ME – January 26, 2018 – For the second time, the American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA) has identified the Norway Center as a top performer. Each year, ACHCA recognizes the leaders of top-performing skilled nursing facilities across the country through their “Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award,” sponsored by ABILITY Network. This award has been given to the Norway Center because of its leadership excellence. This award is a distinction of significance. According to ACHCA, only 11% of facilities nationwide qualify.
Gail Winchell, the center’s administrator said, “I’m accepting this award on behalf of all our staff here at the Norway Center. They all do a phenomenal job and they should be proud of this accomplishment.”
The center’s leadership team is invited to attend the ACHCA 52nd Annual Convocation and Exposition, April 21-21, 2018 in Orlando, FL. Here at this Convocation they will be recognized for their excellence with their peers and will leave with a framed award certificate.
In addition, to this outstanding award, the Norway Center’s annual survey results have come in for 2017. They are proud to announce that they received a 5 star rating. This rating is reflected upon the center’s employees and their dedication to make the facility the best that it could be. They are currently ranked 4th out of 101 facilities in Maine.
These are among other achievements that were awarded to the Norway Center for 2017-18. Previously, they were awarded a 5 star rating on Nursing Home Compare. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) provides ratings information on the Nursing Home Compare website to help individuals, family members, caregivers, and the public find and compare the quality of nursing homes more easily. They have also been recognized over the past four years by U.S. News & World Report, as one of the “Best Nursing Homes” in the United States. The Best Nursing Homes 2017-2018 ratings highlight the top nursing homes out of nearly 16,000 facilities nationwide.
These accomplishments reflect the hardworking team at the Norway Center and their mission to provide their customers with the best quality care possible.
