Vancouver, Wash. – Prestige Care, a leading provider of skilled nursing and rehabilitative care, is pleased to announce that Debbie McDowell, activity director at Prestige Care and Rehabilitation - Pinewood Terrace in Colville, Wash., has received the 2013 Washington Health Care Association Chapter 10’s Activities Professional of the Year Award.

“Debbie has improved the quality of life of the patients she serves at Pinewood through her creativity and dedication to our core values of respect, integrity, commitment and trust,” said Rod Howe, regional director of operations at Prestige Care. “We are honored to congratulate her on this wonderful achievement.”

McDowell accepted her award at the Annual Chapter 10 Legislative Dinner, hosted at Spokane’s Davenport Hotel, where Prestige Care staff and residents presented a video commemorating their appreciation for her skilled care and dedication.

The WHCA’s legislative dinner was held in conjunction with Representative Shelley Short, a legislator from Washington state’s seventh district and major supporter of local care providers like Prestige Care and their mission to provide exemplary care to patients in Washington state. A number of other legislators from the eastern districts in Washington also attended the annual event, which provides an opportunity for legislators to gather personal insight into the state of long-term caregiving.

The WHCA provides opportunities for education and professional growth to help members achieve the highest levels of quality care for patients across the state, with the goal of maximizing their individual independence and potential.
