MORRISVILLE, Vt. - The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services has certified Green Mountain Psychiatric Care Center.
A press release says the eight bed state-run hospital has been accepted as an approved CMS provider. As a CMS provider, the hospital is eligible for federal funding. This is the first time since 2003 that a Vermont psychiatric hospital is eligible for federal funding and designated as a CMS provider.
The Green Mountain Psychiatric Care Center will transition to its new location in Berlin as the Vermont Care Hospital when construction is completed later this year.
