MCAL Members,

We are very excited to introduce the MCAL Quality Achievement Program ©

About the Award

The Michigan Center for Assisted Living (MCAL) Quality Achievement Program is designed to recognize organizations that have proven their commitment to quality, exceeding minimum standards and creating measurable goals with proven quality and person centered outcomes. Successful organizations will exhibit a positive and rewarding work environment for employees and will involve ALL stakeholders in the process of improving the organizational programs and services. The recognition received by successfully completing the MCAL Quality Achievement Program will be an asset to the organization and its stakeholders.

There are three levels to the award process:

  • The Pearl Level is designed to educate and introduce the organization and staff to the requirements of the Quality Achievement Program.
  • The Sapphire Level is designed to measure quality data to improve your organization’s position.
  • The Emerald Level is designed to document your organization’s achievements and improvements throughout the application process.

This process is designed to engage many staff members in the award application process. We encourage you to have as much input from various departments as possible, with a minimum of three team members participating.
