Are there in-house doctors?

We have two Medical Directors and several Attending Physicians that visit on a regular basis. If your community physician would like to follow your care while in skilled nursing, that is permissible. If not, we can assist in assigning you a physician during your stay and return you to your physician upon discharge.

How are skilled nursing centers regulated?

Skilled nursing centers are licensed by the state of Ohio and federally certified to participate in the Medicare and Medicaid programs by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
