Mount St. Rita Health Centre recognized

CUMBERLAND – On Wednesday, Oct. 30, Mount St. Rita Health Centre, a member of Covenant Health, was recognized as being deficiency-free and in full compliance with all Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services requirements after a comprehensive survey conducted by the Rhode Island Department of Public Health.

This extensive, in-depth annual survey is a stringent requirement of the federal government. Multiple state surveyors arrive unannounced to conduct a detailed assessment of whether a skilled nursing facility is compliant with comprehensive quality, operational and life safety standards.

Covenant Health Senior Vice President and President of Post-Acute Care Gerard Foley said, “For many years Mount St. Rita’s has been an important part of the Cumberland community, providing high quality, compassionate care to patients and residents. We’re honored to have earned this prestigious status from a governing agency like CMS.”
