Oct 30, 2017 09:03AM ● Published by Digital Media Director

Mercy Medical Center has opened a new Skilled Nursing Unit on the 7th Floor in the North Building. 

The work to convert the area to the skilled unit has recently been completed and they are seeing new patients.  The unit includes 20 private patient rooms, as well as staff offices, a dining room, kitchenette, television area, exercise room, and much more. 

Skilled Nursing Units provide services to individuals with disabilities or medical problems requiring daily therapy, nursing intervention or observation, but who do not require the specialized care of a hospital setting.  The average length of stay is 14 – 21 days.

"Patients are offered a quick transition from hospital to skilled care with a supportive living environment," said Chris Severson, Mercy Skilled Care Administrator.  "The nursing staff is monitoring medical needs, watching for changes and early warning signs, and communicating with physicians."
