Congratulations to the Denali Center in Fairbanks for receiving AHCA/NCAL's bronze National Quality Award for 2022! They were one of only 180 skilled nursing care centers, assisted living communities, and skilled nursing/assisted living facilities in the entire country to receive this year's award.
Opened in 1994, Denali Center is a 90-bed comprehensive short- and long-term care facility located next to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital, and accessed through a corridor connecting the two buildings.
Following the Eden Alternative, staff at Denali Center practice the Eden Principals in caring for its residents. This philosophy has led to the creation of neighborhoods within the facility, each with its own dining room and activity area, as well as a main dining area. Each neighborhood reflects the interests and needs of the residents. The center encourages generations to talk and get to know one another in its comfortable, homelike atmosphere.
Beginning January 1, 2017, Tanana Valley Clinic, Fairbanks Memorial Hospital and Denali Center became part of Foundation Health Partners, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Greater Fairbanks Community Hospital Foundation. Foundation Health Partners operates all three facilities through a 15-member Board of Directors.
