The American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) named Ross Hall a recipient of the 2023 Bronze – Commitment to Quality Award. Ross Hall, the Adult Care Home for the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth (SCL), was one of 277 skilled nursing care centers, 57 assisted living communities, and 60 facilities that offer both skilled nursing and assisted living from 47 states achieved the Bronze Award, the first of three distinctions possible through the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program. The program recognizes organizations that meet progressively rigorous standards of performance to improve the lives of residents and staff in long term care.
“We are extremely proud of Ross Hall for being recognized with this national quality award,” said Tammy O’Donnell, Executive Director of Health & Wellness-Ross Hall. “This recognition is a testament to our dedicated staff who go above and beyond to provide compassionate quality care every day. We are deeply committed to exceeding industry standards during our continuous quality improvement journey.

Ross Hall began the quality improvement process at the Bronze level, assessing the mission, vision, and key factors that lead to success. Trained examiners reviewed the application to determine that Ross Hall met the demands of the criteria. Ross Hall, as a Bronze recipient, can now move on to the Silver Award level.
