Vancouver-based Prestige Care will lay off 150 employees, according to a notification filed Monday with the Washington State Employment Security Department.

Prestige Care owns and operates about 75 senior and assisted living facilities across eight states. Four of those facilities are in Clark County, with dozens more in Oregon and Washington.

Earlier this month, Prestige Care announced plans to shift a “significant portion” of its operations to PACS Groups, a health care company based in Utah.

Prestige Care would not comment on whether any of the Clark County locations will be impacted by the layoffs.

“While this transition will offer opportunities for the vast majority of current Prestige employees, either with PACS or with Prestige, we expect some positions to be eliminated. We won’t know the full impact of any reductions until PACS has finalized its employment offers in July,” the company said in a Monday statement.

PACS Group will assume operations of 53 nursing centers and senior living communities previously owned and operated by Prestige. Prestige will continue to operate 22 assisted living communities under the Prestige Senior Living banner.

Prestige Care was founded in 1985. The company offers short- to long-term care, transitional care, memory care and other assisted living options.

“As we continue to work through the transition, which is expected to be complete by Aug. 1, both PACS and Prestige are evaluating our workforce needs, with intense consideration and care, to best align staff with our new organizational structures moving forward,” the statement said.
