Skilled Care • Rehabilitation Services • Assisted Living
The Alice Center is Alice Hyde Medical Center's new skilled nursing care and assisted living facility. The brand new facility opened in April 2015, and is the first of its kind in the region. The new facility provides advanced skilled nursing and rehabilitative care while providing residents with a homelike atmosphere designed to promote privacy and dignity. The two building complex contains 135 skilled nursing beds, and 30 assisted living beds.
The Skilled Nursing Facility offers 24 hour nursing services and a full range of rehabilitation services in a caring, home like environment. The Alice Center can serve up to 135 individuals in need of long-term or short-term care. The facility is divided into 6 separate “neighborhoods” that feature homelike kitchens and dining rooms, large living rooms, and ample social spaces. Rooms are either private or semi-private, and contain their own private bathrooms.
The Assisted Living Program is a new program offering a full range of personalized services. The program can serve up to 30 individuals who are medically eligible for placement in a nursing home, yet due to a stable medical condition, can be cared for in an environment which fosters greater independence. Residents of the Assisted Living Program can expect a private room, and private full bathroom with a shower. There is also a homelike kitchen and dining room, and a comfortable, stylish living room.
