Transitional Care Scranton & Wilkes-Barre

Short-Term Rehab Before Returning Home

A serious injury, accident, or illness can result in a hospital stay. Following a hospital stay, you may need short-term rehab to return home safely. While acute Care treats disease or injury, Transitional Care supports healing and recovery. It aims to rebuild your strength, regain your function, and prepare you to return home. Without it, the transition from hospital to home can be scary.

Transitional Care can also benefit patients struggling at home with mobility, balance, stamina, and independence. A short-term stay in Transitional Care can improve your function, prevent falls, and reduce the risk of hospitalization.

Transitional Care caters to patients who need short-term rehab but may not be appropriate for inpatient rehab. It offers round-the-clock nursing, nationally-ranked Care, access to advanced rehab technology, and a multidisciplinary care team. Our expert clinicians and caregivers work as a team with one goal: a fuller, faster recovery for our patients.
