Almost Home Program

The Almost Home program focuses on privacy and convenience, while helping you or a loved one rest easier, heal faster - and make the transition to return home as soon as possible.

When an injury, illness or other medical condition requires additional care, Almost Home offers a specialized environment within the hospital that can help speed recovery. Each patient also benefits from a highly skilled care team (a registered nurse, physical/occupational/speech therapist, and a member of the Pastoral Care Department) that addresses inner and outer healing in a simulated home environment.

Combining health care services that address the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of every patient, the Almost Home Program utilizes a “patient-centered” philosophy that addresses both internal and external healing.
