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.
Prestonsburg HealthCare Center honored our city employees and emergency workers with a gift bag full of goodies and a special “thank you” breakfast. We are especially grateful for all they do to keep our community safe. Downtown Prestonsburg is a better place to work and live because of the work you do.

More than 1,000 Signature staff members registered for the recent Spirituality LearnFEST, a virtual learning conference that encouraged participants to consider the impact of spirituality, if fully activated, in a long-term care environment.
And that number doesn’t even include the many who joined in groups, in offices, breakrooms and wherever there were TVs or computers at Signature centers across 10 states to view the live broadcast. The event featured sessions that tied spirituality to numerous aspects of long-term care and health care, from clinical care to legislative involvement and the impact of spirituality in the workplace.
Prestonsburg HealthCare Center Stakeholders gathered around their computers on March 12th & 13th to unite their hearts & minds together to understand how to better utilize the Signature pillar of Spirituality within our home.
“In a move that boldly combines two of Signature’s three cultural pillars, the Signature Sprituality Department is poised to host the first annual Spirituality LearnFEST virtual learning conference this week on Thursday and Friday, March 12-13.
