The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid have upgraded its overall quality rating of Mason Pointe Senior Living Community from two stars to four stars out of a possible five since Lutheran Senior Services (LSS) purchased the community on February 1, 2016. This above average quality rating includes stringent health inspection, safety, staffing, and quality measures. Mason Pointe has 230 licensed beds offering short stay rehabilitation and 24-hour long term nursing care services.
“Their team achieved this improvement in less than five months of ownership thanks to our thorough and ongoing efforts to clean, renovate, and restructure all service areas throughout the Mason Pointe campus,” said John Kotovsky, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lutheran Senior Services. “This achievement also acknowledges and affirms the high level of care and service LSS provides and the high priority we are placing on the future of Mason Pointe.”
On February 1, LSS acquired the Cedars of Town & Country and announced it would consolidate its REACH West County services with those of the Cedars at the re-named Mason Pointe. In May, LSS began moving approximately 20 residents from REACH West County Short Stay Rehabilitation from the campus of Mercy Hospital in Creve Coeur to Mason Pointe. The movement of all residents from REACH was completed earlier this month; and LSS has turned control of the REACH property back over to Mercy.
Mason Pointe is located approximately three miles from Mercy Hospital on the South Outer Road of I-64 between Mason Road and Maryville Centre Drive. Mason Pointe will continue to serve Mercy Hospital’s post-acute patients – as well as others in the surrounding communities – in need of rehabilitation services.
“We knew that Mason Pointe had the talent and the ability to change their star rating of care,” Kotovsky added. “We will continue to improve the quality of care as we explore our options to provide additional services beyond those already offered at Mason Pointe in the future.”
