Prestige Care and Rehabilitation Center of Anchorage Earns Quality Excellence Award
Mountain-Pacific Quality Health recognizes skilled nursing center for patient safety, providing high-quality care
ANCHORAGE—Prestige Care and Rehabilitation Center of Anchorage was recently awarded the 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 patient safety, satisfaction, and health care services.
As one of Alaska’s leading health care quality oversight organizations, Mountain-Pacific Quality Health honors centers that champion patient safety and work to eliminate health care-acquired conditions. This is the second year that Prestige Care and Rehabilitation Center of Anchorage has been recognized by the organization for providing high-quality care.
“This recognition is another example of our Anchorage team’s continual commitment to quality and improvement,” said Harold Delamarter, founding partner and CEO of Prestige Care. “We’re proud of the high standards every caregiver across our organization holds themselves to—their passion for positive growth and change is what makes awards like these possible and is the foundation of what makes Prestige such a special place for our patients and families.”
Mountain-Pacific Quality Health’s scoring system is based on thirteen publicly reported quality measures which help assess the level of care in long-term care facilities and provides feedback on opportunities for sustainable improvements. In 2018, Prestige Care and Rehabilitation of Anchorage earned Mountain-Pacific Quality Health’s “Quality Achievement Award,” which is the first among three levels of distinction recognized by the program. This year’s Quality Excellence Award represents Prestige’s progression in achieving high composite scores in the areas established by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ National Nursing Home Quality Care Collaborative.
