Skilled Nursing Care and Rehabilitation

Offering Short Term, Long Term and Respite Care Services

Welcome to Memorial Hospitalís Skilled Nursing Unit where individuals in need of care can find the specialized therapies they need and the quality care they deserve. The programs of this facility combine the advantages of specialized rehabilitation and long term care with the services of our acute care hospital.

An individualized plan for around the-clock care is developed by our interdisciplinary care team including:
  • Resident and Family
  • Nursing
  • Social Services
  • Physician
  • Activities
  • Dietary
  • Physical Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Speech Therapy
  • Respiratory Therapy
  • Pharmacist
  • Wound Care


Rehabilitation is often a critical component of a residentís care plan. Under the direction of the residentís physician, a skilled team of physical, occupational and speech therapists evaluate the rehab needs of each resident and designs an outcome-oriented treatment program.

"I truly enjoyed my stay at the Memorial Hospital Skilled Nursing Unit. The rehab therapists are wonderful and I looked forward to going to rehab every day. My meals were very good. I enjoyed the activities that were offered, especially the country breakfast. Location was a major factor in making my stay at the Memorial Hospital Skilled Nursing Unit a more pleasurable experience as my family and friends were able to visit daily."

Enhancing Quality of Life

The goal of specialized rehabilitation is to help residents attain their maximum potential and restore the abilities and confidence essential to independent living.

Physical Therapists assist in body strengthening, mobility, flexibility, and gait training to prevent injury and to help patients in their recovery.

Occupational Therapists assist in performing activities of daily living.

Speech Language Pathologists help with cognition, speech, and language to help patients and families communicate.

All therapists strive to maximize the patients potential and help families understand and assist with limitations.

Our residents enjoy socialization in one of our two dining rooms that feature buffet style dining. The registered dietician visits with each resident to obtain food preferences and develops their individualized menu. Staff is available to serve and assist residents at meals.

In working closely with physicians, residents and their families, nursing is able to offer the highest quality of care to enhance the quality of life of the residents.

Our Social Workers closely assist residents and their families throughout their stay. Social workers are available to provide individual, group, or family assistance and act as a liaison and advocate for the resident. The social workers also assist in facilitating a safe, planned discharge.

Residents are encouraged to participate in a wide range of activities such as parties, movies, exercise classes, musical programs, religious services, craft classes, Wii and entertainment experiences. The activity department also schedules outside excursions to allow residents to stay in touch with the community.

Admissions to the Skilled Nursing Unit are carefully considered for individuals who require professional nursing care and related medical services on a 24-hour, 7 day a week basis while not currently in need of acute hospital care.

The Skilled Nursing Unit is nestled in the Endless Mountains of Northeastern Pennsylvania and is conveniently located just off Route 6 in North Towanda on the Memorial Hospital campus in Bradford County.
