State revokes license of RainDance Healthcare Group, Inc.
December 18, 2008
"Our first and top priority is for the care and safety of the 88 residents," Health and Social Services Commissioner Bill Hogan said. "Our goal is to maintain a continuity of service, avoiding any further disruption in the residents' lives. We will assess each person's situation and ensure that they receive the best possible care."
An inspection of the facility by state officials with the office of Certification and Licensing last week revealed conditions which the state believed to present an "immediate danger to the health, safety or welfare" of individuals receiving services at the center. The revocation was issued under the authority of Alaska Statute 47.32.130.
"The state has brought in extra staff to assist during this transition," Hogan said. "We will be running the facility temporarily while giving RainDance the opportunity to work through the appeal process."
