Covington, Ga. – PruittHealth-Covington, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center serving the Newton community, recently was named a recipient of the 2019 Bronze - Committed to Quality Award by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living.
The distinction is the first of three progressive award levels through the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program. The program, presented by the leading association in long term and post-acute care, honors association members across the country that have demonstrated their dedication to improving quality of care for seniors and persons with disabilities.
