Lakeland Village fails review

Federal matching payments for future residents withheld until issues resolved

Lakeland Village, the state Department of Social and Health Services residential facility for adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities in Medical Lake, was put on notice on Sept. 13 after an inspection by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services found the facility failed to meet several standards of care.

“Surveyors came down and saw some things they didn’t like and put us in a denial of payment status,” DSHS spokeswoman Lisa Copeland said. “That means we cannot take on any new residents and get a federal match. It does not affect any of the existing residents.”
