Skilled Nursing Care

Our goal is to provide a superior experience for our skilled nursing care patients and their families.

That means providing all of the services they need — while also shortening their length of stay and total overall expense.

Skilled nursing care at Cass County Memorial Hospital makes sense — and we have the data to prove it.*

  • Shorter stays
    Our average length of stay is 5.4 days.
  • Better outcomes
    Less than 1% of our patients return to inpatient/ER care within 30 days of discharge
  • Better value
    Although our daily fees are higher than other facilities, our shorter length of stay and better outcome mean that the overall total expense to the patient is lower.

We provide multiple types of skilled nursing care including:

  • Physical Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Long-term antibiotics
  • Wound, ostomy, continence (WOC)
