Rhea Medical Center is available to provide skilled care services to patients.
What is skilled care:
Skilled is a term that refers to a patient's care or treatment that can only be done by licensed personnel. Examples of skilled care include rehabilitation after a surgery or hospital stay.
Often patients are ready to be discharged from an acute care hospital, but are not quite ready to go home due to changes in their daily healthcare needs. Rhea Medical Center can help! Our team of physicians, nurse practitioners, RNs, physical therapists, as well as all other departments of the hospital can provide the skilled care needed to improve or maintain a patient’s condition. After receiving skilled care, patients can function more independently, often returning to his/her home without the need of further assistance.
Once identified as a candidate for Skilled care, a patient has the choice of where he/she may go for the continued care. A patient or family can choose Rhea Medical Center. Rhea Medical Center will work with the referring hospital to coordinate care with other caregivers and work with the patient’s insurance for approval of transition of care.
