Skilled Nursing and Comprehensive Recovery

At PHC we specialize in short-term rehab to home care and long-term care.  We make it our mission to exceed expectations. The vision of our team is to care for each of our patients’ mind, body, and spirit during their stay.  Personalized care plans are designed to help each patient reach goals and return home safely, and as quickly as their body will allow.

Each personalized care plan is created within 24 hours of admission.  These care plans are carefully created by our team using knowledge from each service.  This includes skilled nursing, rehab, music to memory, respiratory and spirituality.  In addition to short-term rehab, long-term care is another skilled benefit we provide.  Our team will discuss long-term care if we feel it is appropriate for the patient.  Keeping families informed of progress and change is a high priority for our team, therfore each family works closely with our Transitional Care Coordinator to ensure this is accomplished.

Our talented and friendly staff members strive for excellence if every aspect of care we provide.

Long-Term Care

In conjuction with our short-term rehab to home program, we also offer long-term care.  Our long-term residents are provided all the same amenities and support as our rehab to home patients.  The PHC team respects that our facility is home for these patients and we do everything possible to create a safe, peaceful and comfortable environment for the residents.  Shared and Private rooms are available in our long-term hall.

Music helps to reduce depression and anxiety and improve quality of life. We are the only Music and Memory Certified Care Organization in the Wabash Valley.


The healing process is about more than just physical healing.  Providence Health Care is sponsored by the Sisters of Providence and we are dedicated to meeting the spiritual needs of all patients.  We offer a person-centered approach that cares for, and values, the mind, body, and spirit of each patient. This person-centered approach greatly benefits our patients and families on their emotional road to recovery.
