South Dakota Gets First New SNF Since 1988
The state of South Dakota has a new SNF — its first in nearly 30 years.
The Good Samaritan Society has opened a facility in Rapid City, S.D., called Saint Martin Village, reported Newscenter 1. The campus added 30 long-term care beds to the area.
The state of South Dakota first implemented a moratorium on nursing home construction in 1988, which restricted construction to the replacement of existing facilities, with a few scant exceptions. Saint Martin Village is the first newly constructed nursing home in the state since the moratorium first took effect.
Good Samaritan is now seeking to make the facility Medicare- and Medicaid-certified.
