Skilled Nursing Facility

Parkview Medical Center's Skilled Nursing Facility is a licensed extended care facility commonly referred to as a nursing home and is located in the North Annex on the 3rd Floor. We offer short term care for individuals who need treatments or rehabilitation services that can only be performed by trained and licensed professionals. The patients that are referred to us may also suffer from serious or persistent health issues that are too complicated to be tended to at home or at an assisted living facility. Our program is inspected and regulated by the State Department of Health Services.
