Avamere wins quality award

Avamere at Hillsboro, a retirement community for independent older adults that offers assisted living services, has been awarded the “Silver Achievement in Quality” award from the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL).

According to the information accompanying the award, Avamere at Hillsboro was recognized because it has “demonstrated systematic progressions in quality, strategies for continual improvement and sustainable organizational goals.”

Established by AHCA/NCAL in 1996, the National Quality Award Program incorporates the values and standards of the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program to assist providers of post-acute care services in achieving their performance excellence goals.

“This is a great moment for both the staff and residents of Avamere at Hillsboro,” said Avamere executive director Timothy Minks. “We worked very hard for this award, and we will continue to live out our mission to enhance the life of every person we serve as we work toward achieving the Gold Excellence in Quality award.”

Founded in 1995 and based in Wilsonville, Avamere began as a single nursing facility in Hillsboro. Now, the company is comprised of 41 independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing facilities, more than 6,000 employees, and multiple ancillary health care companies that provide services including inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, home care, home health and hospice.
