Extended-Care facilities or support wing of our hospital offers wound care, IV therapy, and are typically able to accommodate more chronic medical health needs. Extended-Care facilities provide skilled therapy services within the home. Our Extended care domain represents a new level of care designed to provide skilled nursing services in a high-quality extended-care facility at less cost than in a hospital. For many patients, it will provide the necessary skilled nursing care to restore good health and enable the return to independent living in the community. For those with a continuing need for long-term nursing care, it will provide the early stages of such care.
Extended-care facilities offer both skilled therapy services (Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech Therapy) and long-term care.
