About Subacute

Subacute care, as part of the health care continuum, is designed specifically for patients who can benefit from the provision of nursing and rehabilitation care following an acute illness.

Subacute care is a level of care needed by a patient who does not require hospital acute care, but who requires more intensive skilled nursing care than is provided to the majority of patients in a skilled nursing facility. Patients may receive up to three hours of therapy each day depending on their plan of care. The primary goal of subacute care is to help the patient return home as safely and quickly as possible.
