PRAIRIE CITY – According to BMHD officials, the Blue Mountain Care Center in Prairie City has historically maintained a wait list for residents needing to utilize the level of care the facility offers. Blue Mountain Hospital District CEO Cam Marlowe recently informed KJDY listeners that soon the center will be accepting more residents:

“We are taking new residents. Now, that doesn’t mean this very second that we can take new residents, but we’re definitely ramping up with the right caregivers—that being CNAs, and RNs and LPNs—to be able to take care of more residents than we currently have.”

Marlowe also mentioned the hospital district has openings and sign-on bonuses for RNs, LPNs and CNAs.
