What is Transitional Care?
After hospitalization due to surgery, injury or an acute illness, transitional care may be needed to achieve an optimal level of strength and to receive additional treatments or therapies prior to returning home.
Ruby Valley Medical Center offers transitional care services which integrate regular healthcare provider appointments, skilled nursing, medication management, physical therapy, lab tests, radiology, and mental health services, as needed. A personalized plan is designed for your goals to maximize your rehabilitation.
