ROSE HILL – Lakepoint Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and Carriage House Assisted Living have been acquired by Preferred Care Partners Management Group, L.P. of Texas for an undisclosed amount.
With the new ownership has come a name change, to Fountainview Nursing and Rehabilitation and Carriage House Assisted Living.
“Carol George, RN, who has been at Fountainview for the past 11 years, was promoted from director of nursing to administrator,” said Jeanne Dillon, director of marketing. “Our philosophy is ‘healthcare is local.’”
The sale of the business was prompted by the retirement of Larry Wilkerson, who has been in the long term care industry since 1968. Wilkerson was administrator and owned the business with his wife, Susie.
George and the remaining staff stayed on after the acquisition.
Fountainview is a 56-bed skilled nursing center, and Carriage House is a 20-bed assisted living facility.
Preferred Care Partners Management Group, L.P. manages 73 health care locations comprised of skilled nursing, assisted living, independent living and a rehabilitation hospital.
“One of the new initiatives you will see at Fountainview Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in the near future is Accunurse – a voice activated care delivery system,” said Dillon.
She said Fountainview is focused on reducing unnecessary re-hospitalizations, using systems and tools to identify declines in a patient and acting early to prevent unnecessary hospitalizations.
“We’re always here to serve the community,” said George.
