Grand Opening of Transitional Care by Saint Therese

Saint Therese, a faith-based senior care and housing organization, celebrated the grand opening of Transitional Care by Saint Therese on May 25. Located on the fourth floor of North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale; 32 private skilled nursing rooms provide care to patients transitioning from hospital to home due to illness, injury or surgery.
Transitional Care by Saint Therese is one of the few post-acute care centers located within a hospital setting. The partnership with North Memorial was developed to improve patient satisfaction and decrease length of stay for many conditions.
“Saint Therese continues to provide innovative care options that meet the needs of older adults,” said Saint Therese President & CEO Barb Rode. “Transitional Care by Saint Therese offers a unique setting for individuals transitioning from hospital to home. We are pleased to partner with
North Memorial Medical Center to offer this level of care for patients.”
Transitional Care by Saint Therese provides care that involves a multidisciplinary team working together. Patients benefit from a continuity of care by being connected to North Memorial Medical Center and may receive regular visits from specialized physicians and nurse practitioners, on-unit physical, occupational and speech therapists, registered dieticians and pastoral care staff.
The latest technologies are being utilized at Transitional Care by Saint Therese to provide the very best in patient care including: a two-way nurse call system, an automated medication dispensing system and on demand, in-room education.
Saint Therese is excited for this addition to its growing senior care organization. It remains committed to providing exceptional care and better outcomes.
