Skilled nursing care is a high level of medical care that is provided by trained individuals, such as registered nurses (RNs) and physical, speech, and occupational therapists. These services can be necessary over the short term for rehabilitation from an illness or injury. Our main goal for our patients entering our skilled care facilities at Southern Tennessee Regional Health System Winchester and Sewanee is to get them back to their home.

Admission requirements vary depending on the insurance. Most follow Medicare guidelines and require a 3 night stay in the hospital within 30 days of admission. A few insurances do not require this. Patients also have 30 days after discharge to readmit without another 3 night stay in the hospital if they get home and determine they need additional care, provided no Medicare days have previously been used the first 20 days are covered at 100%.
