More than 40 communities operated by Gardant Management Solutions have been honored as part of the National Center for Assisted Living’s (NCAL) Quality Initiative Recognition Program.

This national program is designed to recognize assisted living communities that have shown a commitment to quality and improving the lives of the residents they serve.

“The long term and post-acute care profession has been at the forefront of quality improvement efforts, and the results speak for themselves,” said Mark Parkinson, President and CEO of AHCA/NCAL. “It’s obvious that providers have put effort into quality improvement this past year, and I’m confident we’ll continue to make progress in the years to come.”

To be recognized, communities attained one or more of the organization’s four quality goals: staff stability, excellent customer satisfaction, low hospital readmissions and limited use of off-label antipsychotics.

Six Gardant-managed communities were among the 140 communities nationwide that met two of those goals this year:

Heritage Woods of Huntley
Heritage Woods of Sterling
John Evans Supportive Living
White Oaks at McHenry
