Hilltop Earns National Quality Award

(Pineville, LA – July 16, 2024) Hilltop Nursing & Rehabilitation Center has been recognized as a 2024 Bronze – Commitment to Quality Award recipient earning national honors for their commitment to continuous quality improvement and their dedication to their residents. The distinction is the first of three progressive award levels through the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program. The National Quality Award Program by the American Health Care Association and the National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) recognizes providers across the country that have demonstrated their commitment to delivering quality care for seniors and persons with disabilities.

“This national recognition is a testament to the exceptional care we provide in a homelike, safe environment,” said Hilltop Administrator Rocky Procell. “Earning this prestigious award is a tribute to our team’s pursuit of excellence.”

Implemented by AHCA/NCAL in 1996, the National Quality Award Program is centered on the core values and criteria of the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program, which is the foundation of the metric-based AHCA/NCAL Quality Initiative. 

“I applaud Hilltop Nursing & Rehabilitation Center for earning the Bronze – Commitment to Quality Award, said Mark Berger, executive director of the Louisiana Nursing Home Association (LNHA). “This remarkable recognition speaks to their tireless efforts and steadfast dedication to providing quality patient care.”

Award recipients will be honored during AHCA/NCAL’s 75th Convention & Expo in Orlando, Florida, on October 6-9, 2024.


Central Management facilities Naomi Heights and Hilltop Nursing & Rehabilitation Center partnered with Dream Flights to honor our residents who bravely served our country with the adventure of a lifetime: a flight in a Boeing Stearman biplane, the same aircraft used to train many military aviators in the late thirties and early forties.
