What Is Specialty Care?
When someone’s medical condition is stable after a hospital stay, yet they need additional time to recuperate, we help by offering Specialty programs in the following areas:
- Wound Care
- Palliative Care
Specialty Care is intended to be a short-term path to recovery. Our programs utilize a very goal-oriented approach: For each patient, an individual treatment program is developed. Then, our experienced physicians, nurses, and rehabilitation therapists work to bring each patient to his or her own predetermined treatment goals.
How Can Someone Receive Specialty Care at a Skilled Nursing Center?
When an attending physician at the hospital determines that a patient is a candidate for Specialty Care, the social worker will then provide a list of licensed facilities in the desired area that offer the appropriate type of Specialty Care. Sometimes a family member or close friend will seek out care for a loved one. They may contact us directly and our staff will be happy to address any concerns, schedule a visit, and arrange for a pre-admission screening.
