Indianhead Medical Center has a 25 bed nursing unit. Our skilled staff provides personalized care for patients and family members. Our caring team strives to provide a positive experience for you.
Patients of all ages are cared for on our nursing unit. Twenty-four hour care is provided by our Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses and Certified Nursing Assistants who work very closely with your physician.
While not part of the hospital’s acute care services, respite care provides an alternative care solution for families responsible for the care of a family member in the home. Twenty-four hour care is provided, while you, the responsible party, are able to take a vacation, await an extended care or nursing facility, or just take a needed break.
