Shelley Basinger: I’m here with Joseph Park from Universal Health Corporation, and Joseph, if you’ve been hospitalized for illness or an injury, all you want to do is go home. Unfortunately, sometimes you need to go to what’s called a skilled nursing facility. Define that for us.

Joseph Park: A skilled nursing facility is where they’re going to do nursing care for you, but also there’s a big focus on rehab services, therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy services.
Shelley Basinger: What type of patient outcomes can you expect when you’re in this type of care versus a hospital?
Joseph Park: Absolutely. So, the continuity of care is very important, from the rehab department, the nursing, dining services, your discharge planner. Also, the frequency of visitations that you get from your mid-levels: your nurse practitioners, PAs, MDs. That way, you create proactive care versus reactive care.
