Short-stay skilled nursing care

Nursing homes can provide skilled nursing care up to 24 hours a day. All aspects of care are provided, including medical attention, medicine, housing, meals, laundry, help with personal needs (such as dressing, bathing, and using the toilet) and other support services. Recovery from serious illness or injury often requires intense physical, occupational and speech therapy. Once a patient is discharged from the hospital, this intensive level of therapy may best take place in a skilled-nursing facility or inpatient rehabilitation unit.

The nationally-recognized Providence Benedictine Nursing Center is a not-for-profit organization. We care for residents and patients in a spirit of respect, compassion and sensitivity. We take a person-centered approach to care and work to enhance each individual’s physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual well-being.  We strive to help each person achieve his or her highest quality of life while living at the nursing center.  We offer short-term rehabilitation services, as well as long-term options for nursing care.
