ADVANCED CARE FOR SPECIALIZED
When you need more than basic care, our skilled nursing specialists provide advanced care in:
Patients with heart failure, coronary artery disease, hypertension or other heart and vascular conditions can receive cardiac care on-site. A cardiologist will visit regularly to monitor medications and diet, help patients manage their symptoms and work to prevent hospital re-admission.
Patients with kidney failure can have in-house hemodialysis and receive care from on-site nephrology and dialysis specialists at several of our facilities. Instead of going to a dialysis center three times a week, patients are able to be dialyzed on-site. Treatments are more convenient and require no travel. Diet is less restrictive, and patients have more energy for day-to-day activities.
Patients with COPD, cystic fibrosis and other lung conditions can get specialty care to help reduce symptoms and improve quality of life. They’ll be instructed in energy conservation and airway clearing and receive respiratory treatments as needed, including: CPAP/BiPAP, oxygen therapy, percussion vests, venti masks and tracheostomy care.
