Prestige Care and Rehabilitation of Sunnyside did not have to look far for its new director of nursing services.
Dana Hilbert, RN, was hired for the post last month after serving in the same capacity the past five years at Prestige Care and Rehabilitation in Grandview.
The Tri-Cities native has been an RN since 1994. Before working at Grandview, Hilbert was employed at Richland Rehabilitation. She worked there as a charge nurse, admissions nurse, resident care manager and as assistant director of nursing.
During her five years at Grandview, Hilbert developed a strong foundation in quality care systems to the point that the Grandview center was full or had a waiting list, a rarity in the long-term care industry.
In 2013, the Grandview site was rated a “5 Star” facility, putting it in the top 10 percent of nursing homes nationwide.
