Exceptional Care

Growing older, even “aging gracefully,” can sometimes require a little help. Our short-term and long-term programs provide 24-hour, expert nursing care under the strict supervision of attending physicians and a wide-range of on-call medical specialists.

In addition to our specialized wound care, pain management, and hospice programs, Forest View offers innovative nutrition delivery, sub-acute care, BiPAP therapy, and tracheostomy care as well as exceptional physical, occupational, speech, and respiratory therapy.

Rapid Rehabilitation & Recovery

After an illness or injury, we all want to return to our lives as soon as possible. With us, recovery is faster and our patients get home sooner. The average stay of orthopedic patients in our rehabilitation unit is just 3 weeks!

How do we help our patients meet the goal of a speedy recovery? By being dedicated to the needs of our short-term patients. Our facility features state-of-the-art rehabilitation units where we provide skillful, one-on-one physical, occupational, and speech therapy.

Great rehabilitative care does not end when it's time to go home! Our Continuing Care program ensures that, upon discharge, each individual can maintain their personalized goals of healing and recovery – even after returning home. more about rehabilitation
