St. Mary Health Care Center Earns Bronze National Quality Award from the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living



St. Mary Health Care Center, a member of Covenant Health, is very pleased to announce it has earned a Bronze National Quality Award from the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living or AHCA/NCL.

The award program is a rigorous three-level process that evaluates an organization's capabilities against nationally recognized standards for excellence. The three-level program is the most comprehensive and cost-effective performance assessment available to long-term and post-acute care providers. Each progressive award levels: Bronze – Commitment to Quality, Silver – Achievement in Quality and Gold – Excellence in Quality, requires a more detailed demonstration of superior performance. Providers are nationally recognized for achieving each award level and join the ranks of the best in long-term care.

“I sincerely appreciate that making a decision about a loved one’s long-term health care, can be incredibly challenging for any family,” said Ron Doty, President, St. Mary Health Care Center. “We are very proud to have earned this national quality award. It sends a clear message to patients, and their families, that St. Mary’s is a facility they can truly trust to provide exemplary care.” 

“We thank the caregivers and staff for protecting and providing vital care to residents living in the long-term and post-acute care communities we serve,” said Tara Gregorio, President of the Massachusetts Senior Care Association. “We applaud these facilities for their achievement and continued commitment to quality resident care.”
