Why is our Sub-Acute so important to Bakersfield?
Families are forced to move their loved ones out of town, due to illness and treatments, skilled nursing facilities are not equipped to manage. Sub-Acute Units provide a specialized level of care to medically fragile patients. These patients do not need acute care; but are to ill to be cared for by most skilled facilities.
Frequently, these individuals are ventilator dependent, have trach’s or require around the clock respiratory treatments. Also, recent stroke (CVA) patients that require maximum assistants and may be too low functioning for Acute Rehab.
One of the most exciting details of our facilities is the residents of Bakersfield will no longer have to travel out of town to seek this type of treatment! We will be able to care for them in our Sub-Acute Unit and graduate them to our Skilled Nursing as they become stronger. Our new and state of the art gym offers Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy, which will be the transitional catalyst our community deserves.
