Anchorage, Ala. – Prestige Care and Rehabilitation Center of Anchorage is proud to announce that it has received awards from two of Alaska’s leading health care quality organizations for improving safety outcomes and providing high quality patient care.
The clinical leadership team at Prestige Care and Rehabilitation Center of Anchorage was recognized by the Alaska State Hospital and Nursing Home Association (ASHNHA) with the 2018 Innovation in Transformation Award for large nursing homes. This award is given to Alaskan skilled nursing centers that develop and implement an innovative patient safety or quality process, project or program with measurably improved outcomes.
In addition, Prestige’s Anchorage center received a 2018 Recognition of Quality Excellence Award from Mountain-Pacific Quality Health through its Nursing Home Quality Awards program, which recognizes long-term care centers that demonstrate an ongoing commitment to improving patient care and satisfaction.
“These awards are a testament to the Anchorage team’s continued dedication to enhancing our safety, services and quality of care in innovative ways. Providing a safe environment for our patients is one of the most important aspects of our care philosophy, and we’re very proud of the Anchorage team for going above and beyond in their efforts to continually expand and enhance our services,” said Harold Delamarter, founding partner and CEO of Prestige Care.
The Innovation in Transformation Award is part of ASHNHA’s Quality and Patient Safety Awards Program, which recognizes individuals, teams and organizations that focus on developing high quality patient care programs, create a culture of patient safety and support sustainable improvements in quality and patient safety.
Mountain-Pacific Quality Health awards three different levels of recognition, including the Recognition of Quality Excellence Award, to long term care centers that achieve high composite scores through the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ National Nursing Home Quality Care Collaborative. This scoring system is based on 13 publicly reported quality measures which help assess quality of care in long-term care facilities.
