Skilled Nursing Facility

Patients come to St. Mary's Skilled Nursing Facility when their physical condition is stable and the intense nursing care provided on the acute inpatient units is no longer needed. However, further treatment and recovery time is necessary before patients can be safely discharged. Our staff of nurses, physical therapists and others will help to meet those needs.

The Skilled Nursing Facility staff functions as a team, with weekly conferences where patients progress toward discharge is discussed by physicians, nurses, therapists, dieticians, chaplaincy, and case managers.

Patients and family members are always welcome to attend and participate.
