Silver Lake Center, a 120-bed skilled nursing center located at 1080 Silver Lake Blvd., Dover, announced it earned national quality recognition by achieving at least four of the eight Quality Initiative goals set in place by the American Healthcare Association’s Quality Initiative Recognition Program.

“Improving quality care as a profession requires dedication from many organizations,” said Mark Parkinson, president and CEO of AHCA/NCAL. “The program provides an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the progress that our members have made by achieving the Quality Initiative goals and improving care for individuals living in their communities. I commend their hard work.”

In 2012, the association launched the Quality Initiative as a national effort to build upon the existing work of the long-term and post-acute care profession. The initiative aims to further improve quality of care in skilled nursing centers and assisted living communities by challenging members with specific, measurable targets.
