Mount Si Transitional Health Center has received a four-star quality rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, or CMS, rate nursing homes on overall quality, health inspection, quality measures and staffing.
In the last three years, Mount Si’s overall rating has risen by three stars. Staffing levels for registered nurses and licensed practical nurses have risen; in 2009, the building had one registered nurse. Today, there is one LPN and 24-hour registered nurse coverage.
“We are very proud of the work that we have done here in the last three years,” Administrator Beth Marsh told the Record. “There have been a lot of changes and we know that we give great quality care to our residents. We continue to provide short-term rehabilitation, long-term care, respite and hospice care for the seniors in our Valley.” You can contact Mt Si Transitional Health Center at (425) 888-2129.
