IHCA Excellence Awards

Annual IHCA Excellence Awards Program

The Annual IHCA Excellence Awards Program (formerly the Annual IHCA Awards) recognizes the outstanding work going on in long term care centers around Illinois every day. IHCA made a number of changes to our awards program last year in order to better serve our members and give them the opportunity to be recognized not only for the accomplishments of their staff, but of their centers as a whole as well. There are two seperate pieces to the IHCA Excellence Awards--the IHCA Excellence Awards-Staff & Specialty and the IHCA Excellence Awards-Long Term Care Centers. See below for more information.

Long Term Care Centers

Introducing the new IHCA Excellence Award for Long Term Care Centers! This award is based entirely on the care provided in our long term care centers every day. In addition to key data about the center, questions focus on qualifiable information about the care provided—census trends, antipsychotic usage, rehospitalization stats and more.
The IHCA Excellence Award for Long Term Care Centers will begin accepting nominations in the spring. Please check back later for more information. 

If you have any questions, please contact Ashley Caldwell, acaldwell@ihca.com or 800-252-8988. 

Staff & Specialty Awards

Recognizing your staff members and volunteers who have proven to be an invaluable resource to your center’s team is an excellent way to show your appreciation. The IHCA Staff & Specialty Awards gives members the chance to do that. Additionally, you can submit nominations for your center’s innovative programs, communications and community outreach projects. 

IHCA is now accepting nominations for the 2018 Staff & Specialty Awards!! **Please note: If you have nursing staff you would like to nominate for an award, please wait and nominate them for an LTCNA Nursing Award. Information about those awards will be available later in the year.
