Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation
As needs change, Porter Hills provides the highest level of care available to seniors outside of the hospital. For individuals needing longer stays, we create a warm and positive environment in which our patients thrive.
As a faith-based organization, our goal is to help those we serve maintain their quality of life in a warm, positive and caring environment. Full time, long-term skilled nursing is provided to our residents at the Porter Hills Health Center. The staff includes registered nurses, physical, occupational and speech therapists as well as activity directors and social workers. Rooms are private or semi-private.
