Avamere earns recognition

The American Health Care Association recently recognized Avamere Olympic Rehabilitation of Sequim for quality care as part of the Quality Initiative Recognition Program.

To earn the recognition, rehabilitation communities must meet one or more of the AHCA Quality Initiative goals: safely reduce long and short-stay hospitalizations; improve long or short-stay satisfaction or achieve over a 90 percent satisfaction rate; safely reduce off-label use of antipsychotics; improve short-stay functional improvement or long-stay worsening mobility, and/or maintain greater than 75 percent on short-stay functional improvement and less than 25 percent on long-stay worsening mobility.

The healthcare organizations are divided into four tiers, based on how many goals are met. Avamere Olympic Rehabilitation of Sequim ranked in tier three.

“Earning this distinguished recognition shows our staff care deeply about our patients’ and residents’ lives,” said Brad Litle, Division President of Skilled Nursing Facilities for Avamere Living.

“I’m proud of their dedication to living our mission to enhance the life of every person we serve,” Little said.
