When Recovery Requires Assistance
Transitional Care Unit
When recovering from an illness, surgery, or extended hospital stay, you or your loved one may require additional therapy and strengthening, and more help than is possible at home. If this is the case, your care team may suggest a Transitional Care Unit (TCU). TCUs are specialized units with licensed nurses and therapists who provide short-term care and rehabilitation to help bridge the gap between hospital care and returning home. We take admissions 7 days a week. Our interdisciplinary team of therapists, physicians, nurses, social workers, dietitians and therapeutic recreation - will all work together to build a plan of care for your recovery. You'll also enjoy peace of mind knowing that our building is connected to 5-star rated M Health Fairview Southdale Hospital.
