It includes comprehensive therapy schedule, physician specific care protocols, a trained and dedicated clinical team, and patient education – with a focus on continuity of care across the continuum.
v Skin and Wound CareLink - Our care and treatments emphasize prevention, healing, reduction in emergent care and re-hospitalizations, and comfort using principles of compassion, efficacy, and cost-effectiveness.

The program provides skilled treatment enhanced by complementary therapies such as healing touch, assistance with end of life issues such as advanced directives, chaplain services.
Several programs and initiatives are in place that demonstrates our commitment to the provision of excellent quality and achievement of outstanding clinical outcomes.
