Transitional Services

Transitional Services includes our 20-bed Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF), which serves patients who are transitioning from the acute care hospital to another level of care. Another important component of our Transitional Services program is ContinueCare Hospital at Hendrick Medical Center, a separate, fully licensed acute care "hospital within a hospital" that provides intensive and complex medical treatment for patients.
