Located to the north of Pittsburgh in the heart of Cranberry Township, Cranberry Place, part of UPMC Senior Communities, extends a warm invitation to residents and visitors. The facility’s modern and open architecture adds to the fresh ambiance.
Cranberry Place provides a variety of programs that meet the needs of patients who no longer require care in a hospital but need 24-hour skilled nursing and rehabilitation care and other personal health care services.
A professional team of certified nurse practitioners, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and certified nursing assistants work to enhance quality of life and return residents to their highest level of independent functioning. Caring, dedicated staff provide comprehensive skilled nursing and rehabilitation services that address the physical, psychological, and social needs of each resident.
Rehabilitation services are an integral part of the complete care program available to residents at Cranberry Place. On-site rehabilitation programs include:
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Speech therapy
- Restorative nursing, including:
- Activities of daily living
- Splinting programs
The newly renovated transitional rehabilitation unit (TRU) at Cranberry Place provides short stay rehabilitation designed to meet the needs of patients being discharged from a hospital but who are not quite ready to return home.
Board-certified physicians and specialty-trained therapists help patients recover from surgery, accidents, and illness, and return home more quickly.
The TRU consists of mainly private beds.
As part of the UPMC Rehabilitation Institute, the TRU at Cranberry Place:
- Promotes a safe and timely transition for short term rehab patients as they progress towards their discharge home
- Provides individual patient focused rehabilitation services
- Promotes quality care and provides continuity of treatment plans
- Promotes appropriate utilization of patients’ health care benefits
