Quyanna Care Center

Our culture values the wisdom and experience possessed by our elders. This respect drives the philosophy behind Quyanna Care Center. Quyanna Care Center is the only tribal nursing home in the state of Alaska and one of only 14 tribal nursing homes in the nation.

As our patients age, staying connected to their culture is as important as receiving first-class health care and living assistance. Quyanna Care Center (QCC) offers long-term care to elders from the Bering Strait region, allowing them to live close to home while providing them with high quality medical and personal care.

The staff of QCC strives to maintain our residents’  quality of life in a safe, homelike environment. At QCC, unlike traditional Western assisted living facilities, traditional ways of living are incorporated into every aspect of our residents’ care.

Completely renovated in 2010, QCC is able to accommodate 15 elders with round-the-clock attention from registered nurses and certified nursing assistants. We encourage ongoing staff training to ensure our residents receive the highest quality care. A new facility, under construction in 2012, has a homelike floor plan that promotes community among residents.

QCC has a five-star rating from U.S. News and World Report and has received multiple Quality Achievement Awards from the State of Alaska, as well as AdvisorMed’s 2011 Great American Nursing Home Award.
