About our facility:
This is a new 68 bed facility. While licensed as a skilled nursing facility, we only focus on the short term rehab patient. This is NOT a long term care facility. The average length of stay is 4-17 days. Most of our “guests” will be joining us after an orthopedic surgery or after a medically complex stay in a hospital. We are here to bridge the gap from hospital to home, and make it a smoother, safer, transition on the road to recovery.
