A Skilled Nursing Facility for Short-term Rehabilitation and Long-term Care
It is interesting to look back and see the Sisters of Providence adapting their ministries and resources to the needs of the times.
The building serving as the current Mount Saint Vincent Care Center, a skilled nursing, long-term care facility, is not the first building to sit on its acreage or to be affectionately called “The Mount.” The first “Mount” opened in 1881 in a large building now long gone but then brand new. Archival records show that Sister Mary of Providence, then a young religious who later became our foundress, designed the building, thereby saving the Sisters considerable expense.
Initially opened as a home for orphaned girls it served in several other capacities including as a novitiate and as a home to aged women and boys.
Remaining true to the holistic approach to health services
Today’s Mount St. Vincent Care Center, sponsored by the Sisters of Providence and part of Trinity Health Of New England Senior Care Communities, is a 120-bed skilled nursing facility with a complex care unity, memory care and rehabilitation services. Residents at “The Mount” are offered spiritual care services regardless of their faith traditions.
The staff includes a full-time chaplain and a beautiful chapel—something few facilities offer. Patients and residents have access to a comprehensive range of services, tailored to their unique needs. True to the spirit of their founders, the Sisters of Providence, staff are committed to making residents feel right at home.
