Garrett Regional Medical Center’s Subacute Care department is a ten-bed unit designed for patients who may fall between nursing home care and hospital care and serves between 350-400 patients annually.
Subacute care patients require complex care or rehabilitation. Some patients might be recovering from a stroke, surgery, cardio-respiratory conditions, or wound care, or may be in need of additional services such as physical therapy and occupational therapy, or diabetic or colostomy education.
The Subacute Unit features a comfortable, home-like atmosphere with its own dining area, activity room and laundry facility to provide patients with the care and education needed to function when they return home. Subacute care offers a high intensity of nursing care designed to enable the patient to reach their highest level of function with the goal to reclaim their independence.
