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 of reclaiming their independence.
