Transitional Care & Rehab

Transitional Care & Rehabilitation Unit (TCRU)

In-Between Care from Home to Hospital

The Transitional Care and Rehabilitation Unit (TCRU) is a skilled nursing facility within the hospital that focuses on rehabilitating patients who are still recovering from an illness or injury and are not ready to go home yet.

Stays in our TCRU are normally shorter (about 2 – 4 weeks) than at a nursing home. For example, you may have surgery at the hospital and stay several days in the acute setting but still not be strong enough to go home. You could transfer over to the TCRU and continue to get the support and rehab you need while you continue to heal and improve.

TCRU Services

The TCRU provides patients with the rehabilitation and training (which may include any caregiver that may be involved) they need to better prepare them to go home and to be healthy and strong enough to stay home.

We also accept transfers from other hospitals out of town. This allows patients to return to the community and to their loved ones while they continue to heal and recover.

The TCRU offers the following services:
  • 24 hour RNs on duty
  • IV services for hydration
  • IV antibiotic administration as needed
  • Total parenteral nutrition (TPN)
  • Partial parenteral nutrition (PPN)
  • Advanced pain control systems (PCA pumps)
