The award is the final of three distinct levels possible through the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program, which recognizes nursing home and assisted living organizations nationally that serve as models of excellence in providing high-quality care, the release said. Parker at Stonegate was one of five assisted living communities and nursing homes nationwide to receive the 2019 Gold – Excellence in Quality Award.
