Winona Health’s Transitional Care Unit is for individuals who no longer need hospital care but who need additional assistance or rehabilitative care before returning home.

Providers work closely with patients and their families to determine whether the Transitional Care Unit is an option. In general, if a patient needs a certain level of skilled care, such as physical, occupational, speech or IV therapy, the Transitional Care Unit is the ideal place to ease the transition between hospital and home. Located in Lake Winona Manor, adjacent to the hospital, the average length of stay for transitional care is two to four weeks.

Services include:

  • Skilled nursing care 24 hours a day
  • Physical, occupational and speech therapy
  • IV therapy
  • Therapeutic recreation
  • Aroma therapy
  • Wound care (including weekly consultations with Wound/Ostomy Care Certified Nurse
  • Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN)

When individuals are ready to return home, Winona Health can help arrange for Home Care services.
