Prestige Medical Solutions has been selected as Somerset County Vocational & Technical School District’s 2019 Business Partner of the Year. Prestige Medical Solutions was selected for its efforts in providing certification programs to students in the Health Occupations Program and for their exceptional student support.

The partnership between Somerset County Vocational & Technical Schools (SCVTS) and Prestige Medical Solutions began in the 2017-2018 school year when Prestige Medical Solutions was able to offer SCVTS Health Occupations students a way to earn their certified nursing assistant (CNA) certificate at an affordable rate. Additionally, Prestige Medical Solutions offered students courses in CPR, Certified Dementia Practitioner and Certified Home Health Aid.

Supervisor of Academics Randee Holz spoke of the partnership stating, “Prestige made the process fast, easy, and efficient. Ms. Ellisa Lee, Owner and CEO of Prestige Medical Solutions, came to our campus, discussed the course options with our students and answered their questions. Previously, students were required to obtain their own malpractice insurance, however Prestige was able to help with that as well.” Holz went on to add, “As our relationship with Prestige deepened, so did their offerings. Prestige is up to date on the current trends in health care and when we ask about a class offering, they try to make it happen.”

During the 2018-2019 school year, Prestige Medical Solutions added Phlebotomy and Electrocardiogram (EKG) certificate courses, in addition to offering their classes on the SCVTS campus to better accommodate the students. Also, Prestige was generous enough to award an SCVTS student with a Phlebotomy scholarship.

This school year, in addition to the previously mentioned offerings, SCVTS and Prestige Medical Solutions are working to offer a Medical Assistant certificate course. Over twenty students are currently taking part in the CNA course and five students are participating in the Phlebotomy course.

For these notable contributions, Somerset County Vocational & Technical School District is proud to announce Prestige Medical Solutions as the 2019 Business Partner of the Year.
