Cove’s Edge, a long-term care and skilled rehabilitation nursing facility on the LincolnHealth – Miles Campus in Damariscotta, has been recognized as a 2017 recipient of the Bronze Commitment to Quality Award for its dedication to improving the lives of residents through quality care. The distinction is one of three progressive award levels through the National Quality Award Program, presented by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living, the leading association for long term and post-acute care.
“We are thrilled to receive this recognition for our commitment to delivering quality care,” said Cove’s Edge Executive Director Cheryl Dobbelsteyn. “The process for achieving the bronze award has laid the groundwork for us to continue to improve procedures and the quality of care we give.”
The National Quality Award Program, established in 1996, is based on the core values and criteria of the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program. The Baldrige program helps organizations in different business sectors improve and achieve performance excellence.
“We are going to begin working toward the silver award,” said Dobbelsteyn. “The entire Cove’s Edge team will be key in the next steps as we select goals and processes to improve.”
