Spurgeon Manor, a residential care facility in Dallas Center, has been recognized as a 2014 recipient of the Silver Achievement in Quality for its outstanding performance in the health care profession.

The Dallas Center facility is only the fourth facility to receive such recognition in Iowa and the sole Iowa facility to receive this award in 2014.

The award is one of three distinct awards possible through the National Quality Award Program, presented by the American Health Care Association and the National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL). The competitive award program highlights select centers across the nation that serve as models of excellence in providing high-quality long term care.

Spurgeon Manor was one of 77 centers nationwide to receive the Silver-level award this year.
