There has been a continual shift in where certain health care services are provided to consumers. One example is when older individuals are hospitalized for acute medical conditions and orthopedic surgeries. While hospitals remain the entry point into the health care system for many people, skilled nursing facilities, generally referred to as nursing homes, have become, more and more, an integral part of the overall health care delivery system. As such, post-surgical patient stays at nursing homes are far more frequent today than ever, and hospitals across the country are aligning themselves with quality skilled nursing facilities such as White River Lodge to ensure safe transitional care outcomes.
