Traditional Care Unit

Oak Valley Hospital Room

The Transitional Care Unit (TCU) at Oak Valley Hospital provides skilled nursing and rehabilitation services to patients who are still recovering from an acute illness or injury and are unable to safely return home or back to the community. The TCU is a post-acute care unit located within the hospital for short-term rehabilitation with access to all medical specialties, such as diagnostic imaging and laboratory services.

The TCU at ONRC consists of a dining room, patio area, and a common area for patients to enjoy music, television and socializing with their family, friends and other patients. Each room is equipped with an individual phone and television for each patient. The therapeutic gym provides ample space and equipment to maximize each patient’s individual rehabilitation goals.

The interdisciplinary team at the TCU is under the direction of a medical doctor and coordinated by a highly trained and dedicated team of professionals who are committed to providing the highest quality of care to our patients. ONRC’s healthcare providers includes: physicians, registered nurses, nursing assistants, pharmacists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapist, registered dietician and social services/discharge coordinator. An individualized treatment plan is developed to optimize each patient’s recovery and quality of life. The interdisciplinary team meets weekly to review each patient’s progress towards their individualized goals and determine a plan for discharge. The team also meets with the patient and their family to provide any training or education regarding the patient’s progress for a successful discharge.
