Extended Stays, Long-Term Care
and Hospice Care

Aging is not an illness. It is a normal progression that begins at birth and continues throughout our lives. While the physical body may change due to an acute illness or health condition, most often our personalities, emotions and beliefs remain the same, creating histories and shared experiences that bind us to our families, friends and the community. Recognizing these fundamental dynamics is an integral part of the care and support our residents receive at Marywood Nursing Care Center.

Following skilled nursing and rehabilitation services, some residents may require an extended stay, long-term care or hospice care. For those who need these additional levels of care and support, Marywood Nursing Care Center integrates a patient-centered care model and treatment plan with the daily expression of the Felician Sisters' commitment to the Gospel values of compassion and service so that every resident can achieve their highest level of independence possible.

Hospice Care
Hospice is a compassionate, patient-centered approach to care and support for individuals at the end of life. Hospice care treats the individual rather than the illness and focuses on respect and quality versus length of life.

Marywood Nursing Care Center partners with selected hospice providers in a unique and private environment, providing interdisciplinary treatment that honors and upholds the hospice philosophy. Family, caregivers and friends play a vital role, and are encouraged to spend as much time as possible with their loved one during hospice care.


Marywood Nursing Care Center has a Five-Star Rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS). This rating was developed by CMS to help consumers, their families and caregivers compare nursing care centers.

Your kind, caring and knowledgeable staff made all the difference to our aunt during this difficult time in her life. We were comforted in knowing that she was receiving such excellent care.

Words can't begin to express how we appreciated the loving care given to our dad and grandfather during his two-year stay. We know he could be difficult at times but you all continued with grace and laughter. You are truly like an extended family.
