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.

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 Excellence Awards - Staff & Specialty gives members the chance to do that. Additionally, you can submit nominations for your center’s innovative programs, communications and community outreach projects. *Note: If you have nurses you would like to nominate for an award, please do so by nominating them for an LTCNA Nursing Award. More details about that program available later in the year.

Nominations for the Staff & Specialty Awards are now closed. Winners will be announced during National Skilled Nursing Care Week (May 12-18). 

If you have any questions, please contact Ashley Caldwell

Long Term Care Centers

The IHCA Excellence Award for Long Term Care Centers 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.

Congratulations to our 2018 Nominees: 
Clinton Manor Living Center
Coulterville Rehabilitation & Health Care Center

This year's winner will be announced during Opening General Session during the 68th Annual IHCA Convention & Expo in Peoria.
