Professional Skilled Nursing Care
Skilled nursing care is often used for rehabilitation from an illness, injury, or surgery and for individuals facing increasingly complex medical needs. Therapeutic services, coordinated through a multi- disciplinary team of healthcare professionals, focus on restoration of an individual’s maximum independence. In fact, nearly 60% of individuals return home or to a more independent level of care. For end of life needs, comfort care and supportive hospice services ease this critical time of life. For individuals with more complex health care needs, United Zion offers 24-hour professional skilled nursing care.
Designed by award-winning architects, our private and semi-private accommodations provide enhanced privacy while offering nearby common areas, comfortable dining, and social and recreational activities. Convenient outdoor spaces provide stunning views of Lancaster County farmland and the bustling town of Lititz.
As a Life Plan Community (also called Continuing Care Retirement Community), United Zion is certified for both Medicare and Medicaid Services.
