You may need transitional care as part of your recovery from an illness or injury. If you have been in the hospital longer than three days, you may be eligible. Perhaps you are well enough to leave the hospital but are not able to care for yourself at home. As a result, you may need skilled care services. In addition, you may need the care of a registered nurse around-the-clock. Or you may need treatment that includes extensive rehabilitation.

We offer three transitional care options. Because of them, patients can ease between their hospital stay and being discharged home. Our case managers work closely with you and your family to help select the best option for you. Your payment sources and services you need will determine which option is best for you. As a result, you are matched with the best environment you need for your situation. Because of that, you can fully recover from your illness or injury.
