Exterior of Mount St. RitaCumberland, R.I. – October 30, 2019 – Today, Mount St. Rita Health Centre, a member of Covenant Health, proudly announced it has been recognized as being deficiency-free and in full compliance with all Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) 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.

“I’m very pleased with the positive outcome of this important assessment -- as is our entire team,” shared William P. Fleming, President. “I understand making a decision about a loved one’s healthcare can be incredibly challenging for any family. Our deficiency-free status sends a clear message to patients, and their families, that Mount St. Rita can be trusted to provide high-quality care in a well-run, safe environment.”

Gerard Foley, Covenant Health Senior Vice President and President of Post-Acute Care, added, “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.”
