Prestonsburg, Ky. – Prestonsburg Health Care Center has been named to U.S. News & World Report’s Best Nursing Homes 2014 list.
The news magazine and website each year publishes a list of the best nursing homes in the United States based on data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The list is designed, according to U.S. News & World Report, to help the millions of Americans who will spend time in a nursing home this year.
Prestonsburg Health Care Center has received accreditation for 2014 as a skilled nursing facility actively performing Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement activities.
The accreditation, presented by independent accreditor Providigm, LLC, demonstrates that the facility is continually assessing residents’ quality of life with regard to concerns such as pain, dignity, respect for resident choice, and quality of care problems such as whether there are enough staff to meet resident needs, weight loss, infections, rehabilitation following acute injury or illness, and prevention of readmissions to hospital.
As soon as you enter the front door, you know that this is not your typical long term care facility. That is because we strive everyday to make our nursing home just a home. With a culture of resident-centered healthcare services, personalized spirituality and real quality of life initiatives, it is our sincere hope to radically change the landscape of healthcare forever. We are proud to be part of our community.

One favorite activity in our home often seems like a normal, mundane chore to many. However, “normal” is sometimes a blessing. Gathered around the table working toward a common goal, we accomplish breaking a bushel of beans to serve for our monthly “Family Night” gathering. Even greater are the stories that come to mind and are shared among neighbors.
Signature HealthCARE received the citation in the ‘Facilitating Organizational Change’ category for its Executive CNA Program. The award recognizes organizations for results achieved through the use of practices and solutions from the entire scope of talent development.
