(l to r) Receiving the Quality Award Resolution from the Newark City Council are Lois Beatty, Director of Quality and James Gonzalez, President/CEO, Broadway House and Council Member Gayle Chaneyfield-Jenkins.

Broadway House has received the 2015 “Embracing Quality Award” for achievement of a Deficiency-Free Rating during a recent annual survey. The continuing care facility successfully met the Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) standards required by independent accreditor Providigm. Only 328 nursing centers in the US and Ontario received awards placing Broadway House in an elite group of high performing nursing centers.

Upon learning of the award via email, Broadway House trustee and Newark City Council Member Gayle Chaneyfield-Jenkins arranged for a resolution from the City Council recognizing Broadway House’s commitment to consistently improving the already high quality of care they provide. The resolution was presented to Broadway House President/CEO James Gonzalez and Director of Quality and Regulatory Affairs Lois Beatty by Council Member Chaneyfield-Jenkins at the April 20th meeting.

“We are proud to receive this resolution and of the recognition by the City Council for our survey performance” said Gonzalez. “We are most appreciative of Council Member Chaneyfield-Jenkins for initiating this event.”
