Friona, Texas – Prairie Acres has received the Nursing Home and Skilled Nursing Facility Quality Improvement Award from TMF® Health Quality Institute. The TMF Quality Improvement Award program recognizes facilities in Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas that have undertaken quality initiatives to improve outcomes in resident care and improve their performance on specific national quality measures.
The TMF Nursing Home and Skilled Nursing Facility Quality Improvement Award program is based on achievements in 2018.
