PEMBROKE — Pembroke Center, a recently-acquired Genesis HealthCare Skilled Nursing Facility, announced it has been declared Deficiency Free. The annual survey is conducted by North Carolina’s Department of Health.
Pembroke Center provides short-stay and long term care services.
“Our commitment to quality care and everyday compassion is the foundation of what we do,” Administrator Tess Tillison said. “These values continually lead to deficiency free annual surveys conducted by the State’s Department of Health. Pembroke Center is committed to clinical excellence and positive outcomes for the individuals entrusted to our care and our patients, residents and their families value our quality clinical care, compassionate staff, pleasant surroundings and proximity to home and hospital. I am so proud of the hardworking committed staff at our center who have made this possible.”
