Description:

The Special Care Hospital offers a New RN Grad an opportunity to learn a vast amount of skills in one location.  For the experienced nurse, this is an amazing space to utilize your skill set.

 

Our patients always come from the hospital setting after having a complicated hospital stay.  Our patient population is medically complex, with acute medical problems needing resolution before transfer to the next level of care. There is a focus on rehabilitation, however the primary focus is on resolving medical needs. These patients may have had surgery or a respiratory complication.  We care for patients on ventilators needing to be weaned from the vent.  Some patients have extensive wounds that need long-term treatment.  Some patients need dialysis for several weeks, and we can provide that right on our unit.  Our average length of stay is 28 days, so the staff are able to develop relationships with not only the patient, but their family members as well.
