MOUNT ST. RITA RECEIVES A VERY BIG CHECK!
Mount St. Rita Health Centre received a very special donation in the form of a very BIG check! We would like to thank Jim Thorsen who organized a "RIde to Remember II" in memory of his
mother, Rosalie, who was a resident at Mount St. Rita. Jim and two of his friends rode bikes from Mount St. Rita Health Centre in Cumberland all the way to Watch Hill in Westerly in an effort
to raise funds for the cause. The trio was part of 27 donors who contributed to a GoFundMe account created to assist Mount St. Rita reach their fundraising goal this year. This large donation
will be used toward creating an outdoor resident sitting area with benches and a garden on the Mount St. Rita grounds. Jim and his father, Ken Thorsen, are pictured above presenting the
check to Joe Sarandrea, Director of Activities and Innovative Marketing, at Mount St. Rita Health Centre.
The residents and staff thank you, Jim and Ken!
In the spirit of Catherine McAuley we extend mercy and hospitality to all who enter here.
Mount St. Rita Health Centre is licensed by Medicare and Medicaid to provide post-hospital rehabilitation and long-term care. In operation since 1971, the Health Centre was established as a retirement home for Sisters of Mercy. By 1989 federal and state reimbursement was in place and the facility was serving all persons regardless of their religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, race, creed or national origin.
Today, Mount St. Rita is a vibrant health care facility that includes Mercy Rehabilitation, which provides post-hospital rehabilitation and successfully returns individuals to independence. Whether you are recovering from a fracture, joint replacement, stroke, bypass surgery, pulmonary disease, or any illness with a qualified Medicare hospital stay, our Mercy Rehabilitation focuses on getting you home.
The Health Centre is situated atop the hill on Sumner Brown Road in the northeast community of Cumberland. Set among 240 acres of rolling hills, wooded glades, and colorful gardens, the three-story brick building offers our patients and residents the beauties of the rural countryside.
