Nye Pointe, a Nye Health Services campus, has been recognized as a 2021 Silver – Achievement in Quality Award recipient by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL).
The award is the second of three distinctions possible through the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program, which spotlights providers across the nation that have demonstrated dedication to improving the quality of care for residents and patients in long-term and post-acute care.
“The Nye Pointe team is dedicated to providing the very best care to our residents, and I’m thrilled to see them honored through the receipt of the Silver Award,” said Kirk Sweeny, executive director at Nye Pointe.

As a Silver Award recipient, Nye Pointe can now advance in further developing comprehensive approaches that meet the Gold – Excellence in Quality Award criteria.
