The Subacute and Skilled Nursing Unit (89 beds) is designed to help patients achieve the highest possible level of independence. The patients on this unit have met the acute care criteria for discharge, but are still in need of additional assistance, and transfer to the Sub Acute Unit to receive additional rehabilitation to enable them to return to their prior living situation. We offer comprehensive medical care that serves patients recuperating from surgery, strokes, broken limbs, persistent sores and other conditions once treated solely in hospitals.
Subacute services include:
Tracheostomy care and oxygen therapy
Dysphagia therapy and enteral feeding
Extensive wound care
Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy
The leader in care and services for ventilator patients - Our highly trained team will ensure that our patients receive proper respiratory care and total systems care based on their own specific needs. One of our reputable services includes the post-acute ventilator-dependent patient. We specialize in providing progressive ventilator weaning, rehabilitation services and other subacute care such as dialysis, TPN and wound management. We have gained a stellar reputation as the industry leader in caring for the respiratory patient since 1994.
Our approach is to focus on the whole patient, utilizing a skilled medical/rehabilitation team of professionals working together with the patient and family to provide the highest level of quality, individualized care. We believe good communication is essential for a good outcome; we utilize the Interdisciplinary Patient Care Conference along with case managers to assure that all patient and family questions and concerns are answered completely and promptly.
