Central Community Hospital Skilled Care
Mission: Every Patient Matters
We offer skilled care for patients who no longer medically require hospitalization, however are not yet ready to go home. Skilled care patients typically require short-term physical or occupational therapy for 30-60 minutes per day and/or skilled nursing services seven days per week. Patients may transfer to our facility after discharge from another facility. The patient will be encouraged to handle their own activities of daily living, as much as possible.
