Why Choose Us?

There are rapid changes occurring in long-term care/post-acute settings today. Hospitalizations account for over 33% of total healthcare expenditures, and hospitals will be severely penalized for avoidable re-hospitalizations. There is an increasing regulatory burden and monitoring of clinical outcomes for medical care facilities. Nursing facilities who want post-acute care admissions and referrals will be required to provide hospital-level care on-site for clinically stable residents. Plus, both patients and families have increased expectations.
