Team Rockville recently met with the residents of Collingswood Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center who were interested in the upcoming election. Collingswood provides short-term care for people who are transitioning from hospital to home, as well as long-term residential care, and is one of only two skilled nursing facilities in the area to provide onsite hemodialysis. In the last election, the residents didn’t know any of the candidates so for 2019, they invited the Team Rockville candidates to learn more about them. The residents were pleased to meet us and to learn that Team Rockville will be working for people like them.
The big news is that Collingswood Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center has been purchased by Marquis Health Services which “is proud to introduce a whole new level of post-acute care to the communities of Montgomery County.” They planning for $4.5 million in renovations, including the addition of approximately 30 private rooms and expansions of the therapy gym and common spaces, such as the dining areas and day rooms.
Team Rockville is pleased to have such a sterling facility in our City because it helps create a community that serves residents receive the care they need at every stage of life—that’s what makes a city a community. We hope you agree with us and vote for Virginia Onley for Mayor and Cindy Cotte Griffiths, James Hedrick, David Myles, and Mark Pierzchala for City Council.
