In our skilled nursing subacute unit, our goal is to provide the necessary post-acute care for patients to help them realize their maximum potential.

Due to our designation as a level one trauma center, Regional One Health is able to accept a higher acuity than would typically be seen in a skilled nursing unit.

We provide physical and emotional support to patients and their families as they deal with the illness for which they are being treated as well as education and community resources to assist with the next steps in the care plan. Due to our integration in our health system, we are able to work closely with our physician partners to coordinate patient appointments on our unit, removing the need for patients to be taken offsite unnecessarily.
