As part of the medical center's initiative to provide services along the full continuum of care, an attached 80-bed nursing and rehabilitation center opened in 1993. The Cortland Regional Nursing & Rehabilitation Center offers our community four levels of care in a relaxed, comfortable setting:
o Long Term Care is provided for residents who need 24-hour skilled nursing care in a home-like environment and require medical and/or rehabilitative services.
o Short Term Rehabilitation provides nursing care and rehabilitation therapy for patients who have been in the hospital and need additional therapy and supportive services before they are able to return home.
o Adult Day Health Care is a program designed to provide service for adults requiring needed medical and/or rehabilitative care during the day. The program operates Monday through Saturday from 8am - 4:30pm, and is especially helpful for a primary caregiver who is employed outside the home.
o Respite Care is scheduled short-term care designed to provide relief to the primary caregiver of an individual who requires medical and/or rehabilitative services but usually lives at home.
