Riverview Healthcare Community Wins 2015 RI Health Care Association Quality Award

WARWICK, R.I. – The Rhode Island Health Care Association (RIHCA) has announced that Riverview Healthcare Community in Coventry, RI is the winner of the 2015 RIHCA Quality Award.  RIHCA developed the award program five years ago to recognize skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities that show sustained quality achievement, accomplished through a demonstrated commitment to the quality improvement process.

Projects are eligible for a RIHCA Quality Award if they demonstrate significant improvement in one of seven identified clinical areas.  These seven areas are tied in with the current quality goals of the American Health Care Association’s Quality Initiative, which in turn are priorities identified by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid.  Applicants must show improvement sustained over a minimum of one year.

“The employees of Riverview Healthcare Community are committed to high quality care. Customer satisfaction and exceptional outcomes are their priorities and we’re proud to have them as members of our association,” said Virginia Burke, President/CEO of the Rhode Island Health Care Association.

Riverview Healthcare Community is a 190-bed skilled nursing and rehabilitation center.  On its most recent federally mandated satisfaction survey, 96 percent of the center’s residents said they would recommend the facility to others and 94 percent rated it ‘excellent’ in overall satisfaction. More information about Riverview Healthcare Community can be found on www.rihca.com or healthconceptsltdri.com.

The Rhode Island Health Care Association is Rhode Island’s largest, non-profit professional organization of skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers.  Its members are dedicated to providing high quality, accessible health care to citizens across the state.  RIHCA is an affiliate of the American Health Care Association, which along with the National Center for Assisted Living, represents more than 11,000 non-profit and proprietary skilled nursing centers, assisted living communities, sub-acute centers and homes for individuals with intellectual and development disabilities.
