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 Health makes sense — and we have the data to prove it.*

  • Shorter stays
    Most patients stay less than nine days.
  • Better outcomes
    Less than 1% of our patients return to acute care within 30 days of discharge for reasons related to their skilled care stay.
  • Better value
    Although hospital daily fees are higher than long-term nursing facilities, our shorter length of stay and better outcome mean that the overall expense is lower.

We provide multiple types of skilled nursing care including:

  • Physical Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Speech Therapy
  • Long-term antibiotics
  • Wound, Ostomy care
  • Lymphedema treatment
