Transitional Care Unit

Russell Medical is proud to now offer a Transitional Care Unit to benefit patients. 

What is a TCU unit?

A comprehensive inpatient program for the individual who has had an acute medical or surgical event as a result of an illness, injury or exacerbation of a disease process.

What happens during your time in the TCU? 

The  program offers an outcome-focused interdisciplinary approach made up of the patient and family while utilizing a professional team including physicians, nurses, therapists, and a dietitian as needed to deliver clinical interventions (medical and/or rehabilitation).

What is the goal of the TCU?

The program is usually short term with the goal to improve and return patients to a more independent setting, typically home, or to a lower level of care.
