Selecting the right skilled nursing facility can be critical to your speedy recovery. Greene County Medical Center, located in Jefferson, Iowa, offers a variety of therapies and care services to help you regain your independence.

Skilled Care is provided to patients who require additional hospitalization after receiving treatment or a surgical procedure. While a patient’s condition has improved, he or she is not quite ready to return home.

A patient may require rehabilitation, wound care, patient and caregiver education and instructions, medication adjustments by a physician or extended IV therapy after surgery and hospitalization.

Skilled Care provides patients with the opportunity to transition safely from an acute hospital setting to skilled care and finally to their home or previous living environment.

Skilled nurses, therapists and licensed care professionals are available to guide you through your personalized therapy. Whether you’re recovering after a hospital visit, after surgery or are in need of on-going medical support, Greene County Medical Center will help you achieve your personal goals and get you back to living your life.
