EAGLE ROCK, CA — Ararat Home proudly announces that Ararat Convalescent Hospital has been recognized as a 2015 recipient of the Bronze – Commitment to Quality Award for its dedication to improving the lives of residents through quality care and performance excellence. This national award is presented annually by the American Health Care Association, which represents more than 12,000 non-profit and proprietary long-term and post-acute care facilities. Ararat Convalescent Hospital was among only 19 Bronze Award recipients in California.
Implemented in 1996, the National Quality Award Program has three progressive levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. The awards recognize those facilities that are committed to and are progressing in their quality efforts by delivering ever-improving value to residents and families and by improving overall organizational capabilities and performance.
Administrator Varsenik Keshishyan said, “We could not have celebrated our 35th year milestone under better circumstances. Ararat Convalescent Hospital is honored by this Bronze Award recognition. We have long been committed to making the delivery of quality, compassionate care our primary focus. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to Ararat Convalescent Hospital’s success, we have now laid a strong foundation to continue our quality journey by striving for the Silver and Gold levels.”
This year, Ararat Convalescent Hospital celebrates its 35th anniversary. On that occasion, a celebratory luncheon was held at the facility for trustees, administration and staff. Several employees received recognition and special lapel pins for their years of service to Ararat Home. Mayor Ara Najarian sent the Convalescent Hospital a certificate of commendation on behalf of the City of Glendale.
