Every month, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) uses a Five-Star Quality Rating System to rank skilled nursing facilities—with one star being the lowest possible score and five being the highest—based on information from Health Care Inspections, Nurse and RN Staffing, and Quality Measures. EmpRes locations strive to achieve a 4-star or 5-star rating.

Great Place to Work Certification leverages 30 years of research to quantify the current state of your workplace culture and show you how it compares to the best in the world. The certification process gathers and evaluates employee feedback and recognizes companies who have built high-trust, high-performance company cultures.

Customers were asked to evaluate several aspects of their received services. From the results of these interviews, Pinnacle has determined that Prairie View Healthcare Community has qualified for a Pinnacle Customer Experience Award™ in the following service area:

Overall Satisfaction, Nursing Care, Dining Services, Quality of Food, Individual Needs, Laundry Services, Communication from Facility, Response to Problems, Dignity and Respect, Recommend to Others, Activities, Professional Therapy Services, Admission Process, Safety and Security, Overall Customer Satisfaction

The Customer Experience Award™ is awarded to care providers who have achieved best-in-class customer satisfaction standards within their peer group.


The health and wellbeing of our residents,
staff, and communities is our top priority.
