Elk Crossing Nursing and Rehab receives Partner for Progress AwardPartner for Progress Elk Crossing1

 

Elk Crossing Nursing and Rehabilitation was recently recognized as an Oklahoma Association of Career and Technical Education (OKACTE) Partner for Progress. Red River Technology Center nominated the company for their outstanding dedication to the community and its employees.

 

Elk Crossing Nursing and Rehabilitation was established in Duncan, Okla., by owner and CEO Jeff Gregston, and opened its doors on Jan. 4, 2016.

 

The 120 bed long-term care and rehabilitation center is one-of-a-kind and is recognized as a five-star facility by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) – setting it apart as a modern provider of high-quality long-term care and rehabilitation services that promotes overall health and improving quality of life.

 

The state-of-the-art Elk Crossing Nursing and Rehabilitation facility focuses on promoting residents’ rights and independence, all while creating a home-like and community atmosphere. Designed to look like a “Main Street,” the building’s main entryway features a chapel, ice cream store, salon, meeting room, company store, and child development center – all of which allow residents the opportunity to choose from daily activities centered on their social, physical, mental, and spiritual health, and overall well-being.

 

Red River Technology Center collaborates with Elk Crossing Nursing and Rehabilitation to offer training to meet the increased demand for employees and continuing education needs for this facility.

 

Prospective and current employees train in the areas of Practical Nursing, Long-Term Care Aide, Restorative Care Aide, Certified Medication Aide, and Advanced Certified Medication Aide. RRTC also offers monthly courses of Continuing Education for Certified Medication Aide.

 

RRTC’s education coordinators and administrators depend on the advisement of the facilities professional staff, through regular advisory committee meetings, to modify curriculum and technology according to the current trends in nursing care and rehabilitation.

 

The partnership between Red River Technology Center and Elk Crossing Nursing and Rehabilitation is vital to the growth of not only the local workforce, but also the continued economic development of Duncan and its surrounding communities.
