Patients hospitalized for an injury or illness may find that, although they've recovered enough to no longer need acute hospital care, they still may not be well enough to return home.
To ease the transition, Uniontown Hospital created the Progressive Care Center, located on the second floor of the hospital. Here patients can recover comfortably and receive the skilled nursing and rehabilitation care they need - all in an environment that's more home than hospital.
Most patients who are recommended for our Progressive Care Center stay for as long as 12-20 days. And we make every effort to make that stay as comfortable as possible. So even though the center is conveniently located within Uniontown Hospital, the atmosphere here is altogether different.

If we determine that the Progressive Care center is not a viable option, we will recommend an alternate placement option.

Our staff has been carefully selected on the basis of experience, competence and, most importantly, a positive attitude toward providing personalized care to our residents. Our recovery programs, supervised by our medical directors, are tailored to meet each resident's special needs as determined by his or her primary care physician.

Services provided at the Progressive Care Center are covered by Medicare and most other insurance plans.
