In 2012, Hamden Rehabilitation & Health Care Center earned the Bronze Quality Award designation from the American Health Care Association. The commitment to quality designated by this award is a key first step to developing systematic, sustainable, person-centered care and services. Facilities must earn an award at each level before progressing to the next level. We had to provide our mission statement, demonstrate that we are aware of our customers’ environment and expectations along with an awareness of key performance measures and challenges. In addition, we had to establish that we have the ability to achieve performance improvement. We were one of only ten facilities in the state of Connecticut to win a 2012 Bronze Award. Three of the ten Connecticut winners were facilities owned by the TransCon Builders organization, our parent company.
