The award was presented during the company’s annual management meeting at its headquarters in Cleveland, Tennessee. It recognized the facility as the premier location in the division, which includes 23 skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities in Arizona, California and Nevada.
Criteria for this award include excellent customer service, a strong activities department, an active volunteer program and involvement in the community.
Life Care Center of Las Vegas, led by Executive Director Clarissa Dewese, was praised for its high score from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, as well as its involvement with local Alzheimer’s Association events. The center partners with local schools and does a back-to-school event providing supplies and backpacks for children in need each year.
“We congratulate Clarissa and her team of associates who, together, have developed such a strong facility,” said Beecher Hunter, Life Care president. “The residents and rehab patients at Life Care Center of Las Vegas are the real winners as they benefit from the works of love performed by the team every day.”
