NORWICH – The Valley Ridge Center for Intensive Treatment was found to be in compliance with all regulations last month after a four-day surprise visit from the New York State Department of Health.
Interim Director Chuck Kearley told members of the Board of Visitors this morning that despite a few modifications to paperwork, the CIT’s programs were on target. “They were very happy with what they saw,” he said.
Kearley was appointed to the position June 1 after the previous director’s retirement. Formerly a treatment team leader and then deputy director, the Norwich native has been employed at the facility since its inception in 2002. There is no indication for a time period for the director appointment.
