Cambria Care Center in Ebensburg Retains Medicare Agreement

The AltoonaMirror.com reported some good news for Cambria Care Center in Ebensburg: they are no longer at risk for losing their Medicare agreement, according to a letter from the state Department of Health.

In March, a fatal assault involving two dementia patients prompted an inspection that uncovered deficiencies at the home, which is operated by Grane Healthcare.

Mark Fox, spokesman for Grane Healthcare, said, “We had to show them we had addressed the last few things that were outstanding, and we did that earlier this week.” Those issues included changes to medical record procedures and staff reports.

In the article, Fox notes that Grane can now focus efforts on developing the former Laurel Crest Rehabilitation & Special Care Center campus, which now includes the Cambria Care Center nursing home and a SeniorLife center.
