The center, which serves all 100 counties, has 233 beds, including a 40-bed Alzheimer’s treatment unit.

The neuro-medical treatment centers are inspected at least annually by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS). external link graphic Inspectors may also conduct inspections in order to assess problems that arise between recertification visits.  CMS decides whether the neuro-medical treatment centers are in compliance with standards and thereby eligible to receive payment through Medicare and/or Medicaid.  Copies of CMS inspections are available from the DHHS Public Affairs Office at 919-733-9190.
