Safe Haven signs transition contract

Safe Haven Health Care this week signed a transition and lease agreement allowing it to take over operations at Blaine Manor beginning Oct. 1. The Blaine County Commissioners approved the agreement on July 23.

“We are pleased with our agreement,” Commissioner Larry Schoen said in a press release. “Safe Haven Health Care will offer excellent care and services to patients at Blaine Manor in the coming year, and their new facility at Bell Mountain Village will be a very important part of our community in the long term.”

Safe Haven CEO Scott Burpee said his team will make every effort to ensure that the management transition occurs as smoothly as possible for residents and employees.
“Bell Mountain Village is going to be a beautiful facility,” Burpee said. “It will provide skilled nursing along with a variety of other services that will benefit residents and families in this community for a very long time.”

The release stated that the commissioners reiterated the importance of maintaining safe, compassionate and affordable skilled nursing services in the community without causing a financial burden on county taxpayers.
