Intermediate Care Facility
An intermediate care facility provides care for those with stable conditions who need daily, institutional care but do not need 24-hour supervision.
Intermediate care facilities provide medical services to individuals with a variety of physical or emotional conditions who need institutional care but do not need enough care to justify a hospital or skilled nursing facility. This is also called intermediate nursing care.
Intermediate care facilities work best for those with stable conditions who need daily care but do not need 24-hour nursing supervision. This type of care is often provided after a hospital stay or surgery, helping to reduce time spent in a hospital.
