What is a skilled nursing care facility?
A skilled nursing care facility offers both short- and long-term care for individuals who need rehabilitative services or who suffer from serious or persistent healthcare issues that are too difficult to be managed at home or in a personal care setting. All skilled nursing care facilities are licensed and regulated by the Department of Public Health.
