Congratulations, you are ready to be discharged from the hospital! So you’re on the mend, but you may need a little more time to regain strength and heal before you can step back into the routine of independent living. Our Upswing Recovery Care program at St. Joseph Memorial Hospital provides short-term nursing and rehabilitation services.

The program provides services for:
  • Recovery from major surgery
  • Recovery from a major accident
  • Stroke
  • Pain management
  • Wounds that are not healing or need special care
  • Nutritional therapy
  • IV therapy or antibiotics
