Transitional Care of Arlington Heights earned the 2019 Bronze Commitment to Quality Award from the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living for its commitment to providing high quality care. The distinction is the first of three progressive award levels that honors organizations across the country that have demonstrated their dedication to improving quality of care. Based on the Baldrige Performance Excellence Framework, a nationally recognized method for improving business performance, the program sets high standards for quality and excellence.
“This recognition provides national, external validation of our team’s hard work and commitment to delivering great care every day as we help our guests bridge the distance between hospital and home,” said Michelle Stuercke, RN, MSN, DNP, MPH, LNHA, Administrator and Chief Clinical Officer of Transitional Care Management.
The distinction is one of several, including a 5-star quality rating from Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), Pinnacle Quality Customer Experience Distinction, “Great Place to Work” Certification and the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Post-Acute Care Certification, that Transitional Care of Arlington Heights has earned this year.
