Carson Nursing and Rehabilitation Center was one of six nursing homes in Nevada to receive an industry quality award.
The Carson City facility was awarded the 2016 HealthInsight Quality Award at the recent Focus on the Future: Partnering for a Healthier Tomorrow health care conference in South Lake Tahoe.

HealthInsight Quality Award nursing home recipients had to rank in the top 25 percent of performers in the nation, based on MDS 3.0 Quality Measures from Nursing Home Compare, as well as demonstrate a successfully implemented quality improvement program in their facilities.
The other awarded Nevada nursing homes were Highland Manor of Mesquite, Silver Hills Health Care Center and Horizon Health and Rehabilitation Center in Las Vegas, Nevada State Veterans Home in Boulder City, and Life Care Center of Reno.
In addition, awards were given to three Nevada hospitals, Mesa View Regional Hospital in Mesquite, Renown South Meadows Medical Center in Reno and Banner Churchill Community Hospital in Fallon.
