Sometimes after a serious illness or complicated surgical procedure, patients are not able to return immediately to their home. Patients in this situation, who need extra help or rehabilitation, can stay in the Extended Care facility at Ivinson Memorial Hospital.
The Extended Care facility is a comprehensive medical facility dedicated to assisting individuals who are discharged from an inpatient unit, but need extra rehabilitation before returning home.
With skilled nursing, physical and occupational rehabilitation services, and weekly care planning conferences with the patient and family, we ensure each patient receives the optimal level of care.
Our patients are involved in socially interactive situations and mentally-stimulating activities. We encourage all patients to eat meals together in our family room, and, for many patients, a temporary extension of care is all that is needed to return to their normal, daily lives.
