Oak Ridge Care Center is staffed 24 hours a day by registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and certified nursing assistants. In addition, our Medical Director, Dr. Kim, is on site weekly and our long-term care Nurse Practitioner, Elizabeth Kesich, is on site three times a week. We pride ourselves in not utilizing staffing agencies, as it is imperative that our team members know the residents they care for intimately. Our team members are not only compassionate and patient, but also highly trained.
Our team is dedicated to quality and the long-term care profession.
