Skilled nursing care helps you to recovery from an injury, illness or chronic condition. It is the highest level of care a person can receive outside of a hospital and is often offered by nursing homes and home care agencies.
To better serve our patients, Catholic Health's skilled nursing services include specialty teams for the following: cardiopulmonary, IV therapy, mother-baby care, and spiritual care. Rather than attempting to generalize, our specialty teams allow our caregivers to hone in on each individual's unique needs, and provide the best care possible.

The high level of care provided by our skilled nursing providers has been proven to assist in reduction of ER visits and hospital admissions.
