Care Levels

Different kinds of facilities offer different kinds of support for optimal health.

Here is a summary of what you should know…

  • Hospitals are “acute care” facilities—services to diagnose problems and immediately stabilize your health
  • Skilled Nursing Facilities are “extended care” facilities that provide professional assessment and treatment for health problems that cannot be resolved quickly and may require extended intervention following an acute hospitalization
  • Assisted Living Facilities provide non-professional assistance with personal care, housekeeping, meals and medication management.

Mt. Baker Care Center offers a full continuum of care which includes skilled rehabilitation, long-term care, outpatient therapy and same site assisted living. Our services include but are not limited to:

  • Post-operative care
  • Wound care
  • Pain management
  • IV therapy
  • Nutritional assessment and management
  • Full range of rehabilitative services
  • Therapeutic activity programs
  • Social services and discharge planning
  • Medication management

We accept Medicare, Medicaid, and have contracts with most private insurance. Our business office can provide assistance in determining your coverage.

If you or a family member is currently in the hospital, you may be surprised when the social worker suggests a transfer to “skilled nursing care.” Neither hospitals or nursing homes are as they used to be. Hospitals provide “acute care,” services that are rendered until you or your family member has medically stabilized. Often this occurs before you are “well”. When your condition requires continued assessment by a licensed nurse as well as additional therapies, services and treatments that cannot be provided safely or economically at home, Skilled Nursing can provide what you need.

If you or your family member is currently having difficulty managing your health at home, you may need the services of licensed, skilled healthcare professionals for a short or an extended period of time in a Skilled Nursing Facility.

Some of the other specialty services offered include 24-hour nursing care to the chronically ill and frail residents recovering from strokes, heart attacks, orthopedic conditions or other illnesses and injuries. Mt. Baker Care Center's team of experienced professionals include:

Mt. Baker Care Center assists residents and their families confronting a wide variety of conditions, from dysphasia to Parkinson's disease, as well as conditions resulting from elective surgeries, multiple trauma or recovery from amputations.

Mt. Baker Care Center can meet the short term, hospice or respite needs of our residents through recuperative care, which includes but is not limited to post-operative recovery care, wound care, pain management and IV Therapy.
