Intensive Transitional Care at MMC
Rehabilitation & Nursing Care from Compassionate Medical Professionals
After a severe injury, strong illness, or surgical procedure, your recovery
will likely require more than just bed rest and traditional hospitalization.
You may require directed rehabilitative treatments and ongoing nursing
care. At Meadville Medical Center (MMC), we have a dedicated Transitional
Care Unit (TCU) to provide our patients with a safe, supportive environment
to continue healing and reach a maximum medical improvement.
Our TCU team is comprised of various medical professionals, including:
- Physical, Occupational, and Speech therapists
- Support staff
- Specialty doctors
We know that what you need to reach a total recovery can change at a moment’s
notice depending on your injuries or health complications. Our well-rounded
Intensive Transitional Care program is designed to provide attentive and
reactive care around-the-clock. You can also count on interdisciplinary
Team Meetings that keep you and your family aware of your progress and
what to expect in the days to come.

Do not take just our word for it when we say that we are outstanding.

Care Unit among its best nursing homes in the entire country. We are actually the
only Medicare accredited nursing home throughout Crawford County with a 5-star
rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). In
order to achieve such a high rating, our TCU had to excel in terms of
federal health inspections, staff-to-patient levels, and clinical quality
Additionally, the Meadville Medical Center TCU was rated as “High
Performing” for Overall and Short-Stay Rehabilitation by
U.S. News & World Report. This rating is designed to highlight intensive transitional care centers
of exceptional quality and care, rather than centers that only provide
long term care or residency.
