After a hospital stay for injury or illness, some patients may need continued medical care at home or at a specialized medical facility such as a rehabilitation hospital or a skilled nursing facility. This is also called post-acute care.
UPMC in Central Pa. offers post-acute and long-term care. We have a team of physicians and nurse practitioners that provide specialized medical care for patients who transfer from one care center to another, even if they require long-term care in a skilled nursing facility. Our providers are specialized in internal medicine, family medicine, geriatrics, and hospice and palliative medicine. Their goal is to provide quality care specific to your health care needs and long-term goals.
What are the benefits of the Skilled Nursing Facility Post-acute and Long-term Care Program?
- Provides a smooth transition and good communication from hospital to care facilities.
- Prevents hospital re-admissions and shortens time in care facilities.
- Provides oversight of medication safety and necessity.
How do I participate in the Skilled Nursing Facility Post-acute and Long-term Care Program?
If you choose one of the skilled nursing facilities listed in this brochure, the facility's staff will coordinate your care and contact us directly if they assign one of our post-acute care providers to you.
Members of your UPMC post-acute care team will oversee your medical needs at the skilled nursing facility and maintain communication with your physician, as well as assist you with planning any medical care you may need after you leave the skilled nursing facility.

UPMC Post Acute Care Network (PACN)
Skilled nursing facilities in Dauphin, Cumberland, and Perry Counties have partnered with the UPMC in Central Pa. to form the PACN. This network includes an interdisciplinary team of UPMC physicians, nurse practitioners, and care coordinators that work collaboratively with skilled nursing facilities to improve the transition of care and quality outcomes for our senior population. Our goal is to provide access to the best care, at the right place, at the right time. The PACN provides clinical services, geriatric education, and evidenced-based treatment protocols so facilities can care for the senior population.
