Hospital Skilled Nursing Beds

All 25 beds of Mercy Health-Love County are “swing” beds that may be used in any combination for either skilled nursing or hospital “acute” care. Skilled nursing is care by registered nurses and licensed practical nurses for patients whose condition does not rise to the level of “acute care” but still need 24-hour medical or nursing care or rehabilitative services. Skilled nursing stays may extend beyond 96 hours. Skilled nursing patients at Mercy Health-Love County generally are receiving care either before or after a stay in a larger hospital in Ardmore, Gainesville, or beyond.  (See Hospital Acute Care Beds)
