US-based healthcare provider HCR ManorCare has opened its 47th post-acute health care centre, Heartland of Twinsburg, in the state of Ohio.

According to HCR ManorCare, the new 120-bed centre is set to provide employment for more than 150 people when it reaches full capacity.

The two-storey facility will enable the healthcare provider to offer 24hr skilled nursing care, and intensive rehabilitation services for short-term patients transitioning from hospital to home.

Heartland of Twinsburg administrator Joe Wilson said: "Rehabilitation and skilled medical care are important to the recovery process following an illness, injury or surgery."

Heartland of Twinsburg will feature MedBridge, a unit dedicated to short-term stays.

"MedBridge offers a higher level of skilled care and rehabilitation delivered by specialised staff designed to help patients reach their goals faster," added Wilson.

The new centre features a therapy gym, private and semi-private rooms with flat screen televisions and telephone service, Wi-Fi service, social areas and multi-purpose rooms, and personal care services including a salon and spa services.

In June this year, HCR ManorCare unveiled its 46th post-acute health care centre, the 120-bed Heartland of Dublin in Ohio.

HCR ManorCare is engaged in providing post-acute services and long-term care to patients through a network of 500 skilled nursing and rehabilitation centres, assisted living facilities, outpatient rehabilitation clinics, and hospice and home health care agencies.
