Named a 2018-2019 Best Nursing Home by U.S. News & World Report
Located within DePaul Medical Center, the Transitional Care Unit at DePaul is a short-term skilled nursing facility dedicated to helping patients in need of specialized rehabilitation services.
Patients admitted to the Transitional Care Unit at DePaul will benefit from the center's unique care model, which combines the security and resources available in a hospital setting with the coordinated, interdisciplinary team approach of comprehensive rehabilitation.
When patients are referred to the Transitional Care Unit, they are considered by their physicians to be medically stable, have the potential to improve, and agree to participate in their recovery process. Prior to admission each patient is carefully assessed to determine whether his or her condition meets criteria for a short-term stay. This assessment is performed by our Admissions Coordinator.
As a licensed skilled nursing unit, patients utilize their skilled nursing benefits to defray the costs of treatment. Insurance coverage is based on the individual patient's condition and need for skilled and/or rehabilitative services rather than a diagnosis.
