Subacute Care

Subacute Care

In the critical period following an injury, illness or degenerative disease, New Community Extended Care’s subacute care unit provides an intensive level of medical care. Our 30-bed unit is specifically designed for residents who require a bridge between hospital and home, offering a multidisciplinary approach to speed recovery and promote independence.


Subacute care ranges from one day to 100 days of skilled services including but not limited to intravenous therapy, antibiotics therapy, wound care services, skilled rehabilitation (physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy), gastrostomy feeding, tracheostomy care, respiratory care, infection precaution, diabetes management, etc.

Anyone can benefit from subacute care, especially post-fall, post-surgery, new strokes, new tracheotomy or gastrostomy placements, wounds requiring 24-hour care, anyone requiring intravenous hydration or antibiotic therapy, a new diagnosis of uncontrolled diabetes, poor oral intake, etc.

New Community Extended Care has board-certified physicians, nurses and specialists in various fields, including dentistry, optometry, podiatry, psychiatry, psychology and surgery.

Subacute care enables residents to be maintained by nursing services while enhancing their ability to function with minimal limitations arising from their current illness. This is called restorative nursing care.
