Rehabilitation and recovery

You may require skilled nursing and rehabilitation care after your discharge from the hospital. We specialize in short-term treatment for recovering patients and will place you in a private room. Our social workers, nurse practitioners, nursing and therapy staffs and other care providers work with you, your family members and your primary care physician to create and follow the most effective treatment approach for you.
