Blakeford at Green Hills’ Nursing Center Joins Small But Elite Group in Tennessee


Blakeford at Green Hills announced today that their skilled nursing center, Woodcrest at Blakeford, has received the prestigious Silver Quality Award from the American Healthcare Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL).

The AHCA/NCAL national quality award program is a three-tier process setting high standards for quality and performance. The criteria for each step – Bronze, Silver, and Gold – are based on the Health Care Criteria from the Baldridge Performance Excellence Program.

Of the 316 licensed nursing homes in Tennessee, only six hold a Silver Quality Award and Woodcrest is one of that group. There are currently no Gold Quality Award providers in Tennessee.

“We are honored to be recognized in this way,” says Blakeford President and CEO, Van Cluck. “It’s a great affirmation that the care we provide to our residents is of the highest standards.”

Since 2012, ACHA/NCAL has been recognizing facilities for achieving the organizations’ quality initiatives. In 2017, they distinguished 1,575 facilities throughout the country.

Cluck says, “Blakeford’s leadership team is extremely proud of our Woodcrest team for their hard work, dedication, and commitment to providing quality care to all those we serve. They have set the bar high for the rest of the providers in Nashville and throughout the state.”
