At FutureCare we like to say we are "neighbors caring for neighbors. This award means we are doing that, and more." - Gary Attman, FutureCare President
These 6 facilities received the awards during AHCA/NCAL's annual Quality Symposium in Austin, TX on February 24, 2015. Providigm is a quality management system used by long term care facilities to track and improve the quality of care and life of their residents.

The skilled nursing centers to receive this award are regarded as top-performing long term care facilities in the United States and Canada.
At the AHCA/NCAL Quality Symposium where the awards were presented, Barbara Baylis, Providigm's Accreditation Program Director, stated that "the facilities announced tonight will undoubtedly serve as role models for their peers in long term health care."
